Summary
This book presents an interpretation of the interaction of national economies through international trade. It makes clear the links of both cause and effect that exist between an individual country and developments abroad, and then connects these links for all countries into an international system. Issues such as the process of adjustment, exports, investment and international capital movements are discussed. Statistical content from 25 countries around the world is provided to back up the theoretical concepts and the international findings compared
