The course deals with patterns of international trade, both in theory and empirics. Starting with the classic Ricardian and Heckscher-Ohlin trade models, students will be introduced to modern models, such as Eaton & Kortum (2002), Melitz (2003) and Melitz & Ottaviano (2008). In the tutorial students will present recent selected papers.
Ungraded but obligatory: presentation and two summaries (app. 2000 ZoL each).
