Beschreibung:
The course encompasses different aspects that characterize a modern and globalized economy, and animate the public debate (international fragmentation of production and its repercussion on the labor market, FDI, regional integration agreements).

A detailed syllabus of the class containing the exact readings will be handed out to students at the beginning of the semester in the classroom (and StudIP).

The foundation of the course builds on three blocks:

**Block 1: International Organization of Production**

1. iPod: kick off example
2. Outsourcing: ?It?s no wine for cloth anymore?
3. Labor Market Effects: ?Work Level Evidence?
4. Labor Market Effects: ?Changes in Job Opportunities?

**Block 2: International Organization of Production: FDI and ?offshoring?.**

1. The ?OLI? framework
2. The ?Proximity-Concentration? Trade-off
3. Evidence on the ?Proximity-Concentration? Trade-off.

**Block 3: Regional Trade Integration**

1. The Gravity Equation (Lab)
2. Barriers to Trade: the Border Puzzle.
3. The Effect of Free Trade Areas and Currency Unions and the problem of causal inference


At the end of the course, students should
? be familiar with modern features of international trade
? be able to critically navigate the literature
? be aware of problems in bringing theory to the data
? be able to interpret empirical results
? be able to perform estimation of the gravity equation.

Introductory econometrics: a modern approach. Cengage Learning. - Krugman, P, Obstfeld, M., and Melitz, M. (2012). International Economics: Theory and Policy. Pearson.

Such a background corresponds to the treatment in one of these books (or equivalent): - Feenstra, R. (2004). Advanced International Trade. Princeton University Press. - Angrist J., Pischke, J. (2009). Mostly Harmless Econometrics: An Empiricist?s Companion. Princeton University Press. - Wooldridge, J.M. (2002). Econometric Analysis of cross section and panel data. The MIT Press.
