The Week 5 quiz is now on the course website.
Some more trade readings:
- Paul Krugman’s essay Ricardo’s Difficult Idea is one of the nicest expositions as to why plenty of smart people don’t understand the theory behind free trade. There are plenty of other interesting trade pieces by Krugman here.
- The World Trade Organisation has some useful material on their website, including a backgrounder, and the case for open trade. Folksy, but accurate.
- I’ve written a couple of small pieces on trade, including an article on the politics of Australian tariff liberalisation from the 1970s to the 1990s, a review of some recent trade books for the Economic Record, and an obituary of one of Australia’s great free traders, the late Senator Peter Cook.
