Empirical International Trade

Elgar Research Reviews in Economics

Daniel M. Bernhofen

During the last decade, international trade has witnessed a dramatic transition from a field dominated by theory to one dominated by empirics linked to theory.

In this research review, Professor Bernhofen selects an impressive range of critical papers by leading academics which have contributed significantly to making international trade an empirical science. The included topics are empirical studies on comparative advantage, the Heckscher-Ohlin model, monopolistic competition, gravity models, firms and plant trade and networks and institutions. The papers in this collection serve as an excellent introduction to the literature as well as an essential reference for research in empirical trade.
