M, W 02:00 - 03:30 PM; Sachar, Chancellor Suite
Do more open economies grow faster? Does trade liberalization harm the environment? Do preferential trade agreements really help poor countries develop?

This course explores contemporary empirical issues in trade policy, through studying recent econometric research, extending and applying econometric knowledge, and carrying out original research, from data collection to econometric testing and evaluation.
