(Professor  Harrington)

This course presents theory, policy, and practice of international trade and international business.   We will emphasize the economic and geographic bases for and effects of international trade and investment, and emphasize Canada, China, Mexico, and the US, and their trade relationships.  In Winter 2013, we will undertake two tests, two short papers, and a variety of exercises in and outside of class meetings.   There are no particular prerequisites;  students interested in geography, international studies, business, political science, and public affairs should find this course especially useful.  (See a fuller statement of the course's learning objectives and desired outcomes).
