Carbaugh, 8th edition, South-Western Pub, 2001 Contents of the Lecture:  Contents of the Lecture Trade and investment increasingly cross national boundaries all over the world creating a "global economy". This course will examine the economics of "globalization" from several different perspectives. Globalization can then be understood in terms of : - a world of individuals and firms aiming at the efficient allocation of resources while looking for their self-interests through confrontation of demand and supply ; - a world of nation-states in competition seeking security and prosperity by developing their power relative to rival states; - a world where inequalities of power and inequalities of wealth and hierarchies, organized in a global division of labor which generates a first "world" and a "third" one. Methodology:  Methodology Balance between applied economics and theory Avoid simplification : see « competitiveness » Thinking global in economics science : public economics, innovation/industrial economics, information economics and INTERNATIONAL ECONOMICS Thinking history Thinking geographically global : USA, Europe, Asia, Eastern Europe,… Thinking Internet and @-Economy, technological progress Thinking irreversibility, risk (environmental risks) Thinking interdependence Academic work and discussion International Economics:  International Economics The course will be divided into 2 parts Short introduction : What does International Economics means ? We will try to define our subject and limit it : methodology, time period, academic debate, constraints : Microeconomics : trade, comparative advantages, incentives, rent seeking Macroeconomics : exchange rate, international finance, balance of payments Globalization : institutions, competitiveness, specialization, future… Part 1 : State of the art of today’s international trade and finance The first part is related to the description of the major changes in the contemporary international trade relations and in international Finance, integrating both recent trends, today debate and crisis.

We will begin with the analysis of protectionism (tariffs, non tariffs barriers) and the walk towards economic integration. We will focus on NAFTA, on the European Union, on East Asian Economies (China). We will also highlight the role of International Institutions (IMF, World Bank, WTO) and give some elements on OPEC Oil Cartel. The role of multinational firms / transnational corporations and direct investments will be studied. Then we will focus on the international financial markets, their success and their failures, especially in some developing countries. We will work also on the role of industrial policies and new form of market protection. Part 3 : International Monetary Mechanics The third part will focus on topics related to international financial relations including the study of the balance-of-payments account, foreign exchange transactions and the International Monetary System, notably its functioning and its evolution. The European Monetary System ant the new European currency (Euro) will be presented within this framework. Part 4 : Conclusion : future of globalization The last part will examine some issues that involve trade theory and international monetary theory. Referring directly to the course’s works, we will try to understand today situation of trade policy and economic cooperation between nations : Imbalances and today challenges (New Economy and international economics, debate on globalization and inequalities, integration of less developing countries, international trade and environment).
