1.4 International Economics (April 2012)

In the last century, international trade has become an integral part of the economics field. The literature on topics related to international trade and finance is vast, and the courses in international economics, trade, and finance are highly sought among economics, political science, sociology, and finance students. In this special issue, papers by students who were enrolled in the International Economics and Trade course at Eastern Michigan University Department of Economics in 2011 are presented. Students in this special issue have addressed different issues in international economics such as the impact of political stability, corruption, and militarism; or the impact of free trade agreements and European Union membership on trade performance of different countries.
