This seminar course focuses on empirical studies in international economics (international trade, international finance, international macroeconomics). International economics examines the flows of goods, services, resources, people, etc. across countries and studies the impacts of government policies which affect those flows. The study of international economics consists of a wide variety of theoretical and empirical approaches designed to help us better understand and document the characteristics of these flows.
Topics for research projects are fairly open but must focus on an issue in international economics.
