Adv Quant Analysis for Trade

Trade policy professionals who negotiate, as well as those interested in how trade policies affect development through economic, social and environmental conditions within countries and industries, need to understand the underlying stakes and motivations of the parties involved, and how trade policies ripple throughout different sectors of the economy. To develop this understanding requires a firm grasp of micro and macroeconomics of trade and trade policy as well as knowledge of laws and institutions. This course strengthens students' ability to conduct and interpret basic economic analysis at the national, industry, and firm level. The course is a mixture of practical analytical skills and a survey of the most innovative research on the effects of trade policy on employment, incomes and select industrial and agricultural sectors.
