Prior to his current position, he taught at Yale, Stanford, and MIT. He also spent a year on the staff of the Council of Economic Advisers in 1982-1983. His research is mainly in the area of international trade, where he is one of the founders of the "new trade theory," which focuses on increasing returns and imperfect competition. He also works in international finance, with a concentration in currency crises. In 1991, Krugman received the American Economic Association's John Bates Clark medal. In addition to his teaching and academic research, Krugman writes extensively for nontechnical audiences. Krugman is a regular op-ed columnist for the New York Times. His latest trade book is a best-selling collection of his Times articles entitled The Great Unraveling: Losing Our Way in the New Century. His earlier books, Peddling Prosperity and The Age of Diminished Expectations, have become modern classics.

Review:

'The European adaptation of Krugman provides an outstanding introduction to Economics. To a very high standard this text allows students to gain a firm understanding of economic ideas and principles. At the same time it brings the subject alive through topical and up-to-date examples and illustrations relevant to the contemporary European economy.' Andrew Healey, University of Swansea, UK 'The applications using real world examples and the clarity of exposition make this the most accessible introductory text in economics around at the moment.' Stephen Smith, London Metropolitan University, UK
