The flexible format of GLOBAL ECONOMICS, 13e, enables you to present material in the order most appropriate for your course structure and goals by teaching chapters in a different order, or by easily teaching or omitting key portions of ed chapters. Six central themes are integrated through the text to provide a strong emphasis on issues at forefront of international economics today, including the global economic downturn, globalization, free trade and quality of life, trade conflicts between developing and industrial nations, trade liberalization, and the dollar as a reserve currency. The Thirteenth Edition devotes considerable coverage to the "Global Economic Downturn of 2007-2009" to help students understand this important real-world situation. Coverage includes an overview of the crisis in chapter 1, as well as exploration of issues such as trade protectionism, the U.S. fiscal stimulus and "Buy American" legislation, government subsidies to automakers, falling commodity prices and developing economies, the U.S. tax code and outsourcing, and global capital flows. In addition to emphasizing current economic themes and trends, the new edition has been updated to include many contemporary topics such as outsourcing and the U.S. auto industry, U.S. importation of Chinese textiles, the disenchantment of some national industry groups with the euro currency, the impact of global competition, and day trading in currency markets. New, online "Exploring Further" sections support exploration and discussion of more advanced topics whenever appropriate based on course requirements or student interest, while freeing more room in the text for expanded coverage of economic theory and its contemporary applications. The online "Exploring Further" sections allow students to learn more about important current topics in international economics, including comparative advantage in money terms, indifference curves and trade, offer curves and trade equilibrium terms and tariffs, the specific-factors theory, welfare effects of strategic trade policy and tariff-rate and export quotas, foreign-exchange trading and market speculation techniques, fundamental forecasting and regression analysis, and more. 1.
