Trade, Policy, and International Adjustments covers the theoretical issues, macroeconomics, and mathematical methods in the field of international economics. The book summarizes and illustrates the various contributions to the field of international economics. The text presents studies on the issues in international trade and commercial policies; voluntary export restrictions; application of a geometric technique to a multidimensional problem concerning the Stolper-Samuelson theorem; the symmetry theorem between tariffs and quotas in the context of a monetary economy under flexible exchange rates; and application of the Hopf bifurcation theory to the theory of international capital mobility.
Economists, teachers, and students of economics will find the book very insightful.
