Présentation éditeur

Nobel Prize—winning economist Paul Krugman and renowned researcher Maurice Obstfeld set the standard for international economics courses with the text that remains the market leader in the U.S. and around the world.

International Economics: Theory and Policy is a proven approach in which each half of the book leads with an intuitive introduction to theory and follows with self-contained chapters to cover key policy applications.

In the ninth edition of International Economics: Theory & Policy, Krugman et al. has been thoroughly updated in terms of content and extensively revised chapters. These revisions respond both to users' suggestions and to some important developments on the theoretical and practical sides of international economics.
