In this course we review the empirics of
international trade and investment. We develop theory only to the
extent necessary to understand each empirical paper we examine. The
course emphasizes development of empirical skills by emulating
successful published papers and by working directly with the
data. Students should have econometric skills at or above the level
of Woolridge's Introductory Econometrics.
This course is intended both for masters level and doctoral level
students. As a "frontiers of resarch" course it is designed
to cover the current state of economic research and thinking on
international trade issues. The course will strive to make this
material accessible to both audience groups by focusing on the
big picture while also discussing theoretical and empirical
modelling strategies that PhD-level students may find interesting.
