This course is the second part of the International Trade sequence.  We have divided it in two:  Part I is taught by Samuel Kortum and Part II by Lorenzo Caliendo.

The course is organized around six major issues:  (i) Trade and Climate Policy; (ii) Trade Wars:  Causes and Consequences; (iii) Trade, Intellectual Property, and Growth; (iv) Firms and Trade; (v) Trade and Organizations; and (vi) Trade Policy and Labor Markets.  In addressing these topics we will deconstruct basic theories of international trade to bring out their insights and quantitative implications.  The course involves a mix of theory, data, and computation.
