Trade impacts on the lives of all global citizens, influencing which commodities are consumed and how and where they are produced, and affecting work, the environment and our social existence. It is associated with growth and development, and with deindustrialization and dependency. International Trade: The Basics offers an accessible and engaging introduction to contemporary debates on international trade, inviting readers to explore the connections between national political economies within a globally integrated world.
