This course introduces the major transactions of international business in international goods and financial markets. After a brief discussion of globalization, the course focuses on foreign direct investment, examining both the reasons why firms engage in such investment and the ways in which government policies encourage or discourage these transactions. The course then focuses on the reasons for international trade and the effects of protectionism. In the last part, the working of the foreign exchange market is examined.
