This book familiarizes the readers with economic issues and implications of global trade and finance relations across numerous dimensions of complexities with theoretical underpinnings. Beyond its basic approach and the pedagogy, it has a focus on applying theory in the current global economic and business environment with an Indian perspective. The volume may serve as a basic reference/text book for the allied courses on the global trade and finance for the MBA programme and studies in commerce/business and economic faculties in the Indian and foreign universities. Incidentally, the book is tuned with the M.Com. I degree course new syllabus (effective from the academic year 2008-09) for the paper: `Economics of Global Trade and Finance prescribed by the University of Mumbai.
