Inhalte der LV

Trade between sectors, trade within sectors, trade along the international value chain, international factor movements (including FDI), and multinational firms. Special emphasis in each chapter will be put on international taxation issues. Students interested in the monetary aspects of international economics are encouraged to follow a course on international macroeconomics. The course will follow part one of the excellent textbook by Theo Eicher, John Mutti, and Michelle Turnovsky (2009), International Economics, Routledge, 7th Edition, pp. 1 – 335. Chapters are indicated in the syllabus below initiated by EMT. A somewhat easier text that lacks the tax focus of EMT is Robert Feenstra, Alan Taylor (2011), International Trade, Worth Publishers, 2nd Edition (FT). Students with a weak background in economics may find it useful to consult this text before approaching EMT. Students are discouraged from using the staple text in international economics, Paul Krugman, Mark Melitz, and Maurice Obstfeld (2011), International Economics, Pearson, 9th Edition. But in case you have a copy lying around, chapters are indicated with the prefix KMO.
