Preface

xvii

The thirteenth edition streamlines its presentation of theory so as to provide greater flexibility for instructors. This edition uses online Exploring Further sections to discuss more advanced topics: They can be found at www.cengage.com/ economics/Carbaugh. By locating the Exploring Further sections online rather than in the textbook, as occurred in previous editions, more textbook coverage can be de- voted to contemporary applications of theory. The Exploring Further sections consist of the following:

  • Comparative advantage in money termsCh. 2

  • Indifference curves and tradeCh. 2

  • Offer curves and the equilibrium terms of tradeCh. 2

  • The specific-factors theoryCh. 3

  • WTO Makes Ruling on Boeing-Airbus Aircraft Subsidy DisputeCh. 3

Supplementary Materials

International Economics Web Site (www.cengage.com/economics/Carbaugh)

In this age of technology, no text package would be complete without Web-based resources. An international economics website is offered with the thirteenth edition. This site, www.cengage.com/economics/Carbaugh, contains many useful pedagogi- cal enrichment features including NetLink Exercises, which draw upon the expanded NetLinks feature at the end of each chapter. While the NetLinks direct the student to an appropriate international economics website to gather data and other relevant in- formation, the NetLink Exercises allow students to access these Web sites to answer pertinent and practical questions that relate to international economics. As an added enrichment feature, a Virtual Scavenger Hunt engages and encourages students to search for international economics answers at various Internet Web sites.

PowerPoint Slides

The thirteenth edition also includes PowerPoint slides created by Andreea Chiritescu of Eastern Illinois University. These slides can be easily downloaded from the Carbaugh Web site (www.cengage.com/economics/Carbaugh). The slides offer pro- fessors flexibility in enhancing classroom lectures. Slides may be edited to meet indi- vidual needs.
