However, textbooks can only ever provide an introduction, and you should move quickly beyond these and engage at a deeper level with primary texts and articles. If you avoid grappling with serious literature germane to the theories and concepts covered in this course, you will run into trouble quickly.

Websites and News Sources

You should keep abreast of ‘realworld’ events during the course, but newspaper sources should generally not be the main focus of essays and analyses on international trade and economic development. Empirical analysis is obviously an important backdrop for the things we discuss on the course, but only insofar as it helps us think through salient perspectives within IR.

In terms of broader debates per international trade and economic development, you should also regularly check the Project Syndicate website which has articles from leading commentators (which are then syndicated to major global newspapers such as Le Monde, The Guardian, The New York Times and so on). In particular, Dani Rodrik, Robert Skidelsky, Jeffrey Sachs, Naomi Wolf, Joseph Nye and Joseph Stiglitz offer excellent commentary on global issues: http://www.projectsyndicate.org/. EIR is also a very good resource http://www.eir.info/ Also check out: www.theory-talks.org
