It's a very good text for undergraduate international macro courses but a little too light on the math for my tastes. Still, I recommend to anyone who's interested in learning more about international macro and "big" economic questions like why we went off the gold standard (and why we were on it to begin with).

I got this book for a course I was taking at George Washington University. I didn't much care for the teacher's teaching methods nor the book. The book seems well written, but not easy to understand. I only read small parts of it for the 1 semester class. Very dry reading.

This was my school book for two classes: International trade and Trade policy. I liked it because of its complexity and graphs and examples.

Huh. I hadn't realized that my Int'l Econ text was by a fellow who would later win the Nobel Prize. Cool. I guess I shouldn't dump it, then?

A great text on trade - quite popularly used as a text for introductory trade and international economics classes in colleges.

Brain wash for freetraders....no good facts about how asian countries really became rich. Neoclassics for poverty!
