This is a graduate level course on advanced international trade. We take both theoretical and empirical approaches to the analysis of trade and foreign direct investment. We will begin with traditional trade theories. Then we will turn to models of monopolistic competition and models with firm heterogeneity. In the final part, we will discuss selected topics including multinational production, firm productivity and the impacts of trade on labor market.
