“Krugman and Obstfeld are, individually, at the very top of the fields of international trade and finance. I’ve used their textbook for years, and I welcome the new material that they include in this latest revision.”
–Alan Deardorff, University of Michigan
“Krugman and Obstfeld present material in a clear and intuitive manner, leaving aside as much of the technical detail as possible. Students find the graphical analysis to be extremely helpful in understanding the material.”
–Robert G. Murphy, Boston College

After working on the White House Council of Economic Advisors from 1982―1983, Krugman earned the prestigious John Bates Clark Medal for his work on the “new trade theory” in 1991.

However: the book sold to me is the version for INDIA.In the front and last cover of the book it states that it is not allowed to be sold outside of INDIA, and some other countries and defenitely not Europe.
The quality of the print is much lower that the international edition (blurred letters, lower quality of paper) and it is prtinted in black and white while the original has colors. This makes very difficult to follow the figures with a lot of grey lines which the text references with colors (i.e. the red line..).
Before you buy check if it is the international edition!!!!!
Clarity and structure throughout the book, great author, Krugman provide clear understanding in all topics.
Diagrammatic analysis and interpretation are clear and the key theories (eg Heckscher-Ohlin) are outlined.
Krugman has a brain the size of Jupiter (for a laugh, read his paper on 'Interstellar Trade theory').
