International trade[ edit ] Scope and methodology[ edit ] The economic theory of international trade differs from the remainder of economic theory mainly because of the comparatively limited international mobility of the capital and labour. Thus the methodology of international trade economics differs little from that of the remainder of economics. However, the direction of academic research on the subject has been influenced by the fact that governments have often sought to impose restrictions upon international trade, and the motive for the development of trade theory has often been a wish to determine the consequences of such restrictions.
Professor Balassa has been remarkably successful in covering so much ground with such care and balance, in a treatment which is neither in any way abstruse nor unnecessarily technical. His book will interest economists in Europe by reason of its subject and treatment, but it is also a valuable and reliable textbook for students tackling integration as part of a course of International Economics and for those studying Public Finance.
He distinguishes between the various forms of integration free trade area, customs union, common market, economics union, and total integration.
In addition, he applies the theoretical principles to current projects such as the European Common Market and Free Trade Area, and to Latin American integration projects. In offering this theoretical study, the author builds on the conclusions of other writers, but goes beyond this in providing a unifying framework for previous contributions and in exploring questions that in the past received little attention — in particular, the relationship between economic integration and growth especially the interrelationship between market size and growth, and the implications of various factors for economic growth in an integrated area.European Economic and Monetary Integration, and the Optimum Currency Area Theory Francesco Paolo Mongelli (ECB)∗ Abstract: This essay follows the synergies and complementarities between European Economic and.
