Well said, Craig! I really enjoyed this article, and I think I may have to showcase it on my weekend review.

Thanks for the comment. And more importantly thanks for featuring the China quake relief effort on your blog. I just used one of the links on your site to make a donation. I would recommend that others read up on the latest developments through your blog and then do the same.

Its not a problem. I've been glued to the earthquake developments, and really wanted to see things happen there, so it isn't anything special that I feel that I am doing for the Chinese, which are my own people. Thanks for commenting on my blog as well--really appreciate it.


Unfortunately, you'll find that unless you're studying IR (EG: studying at GWU), the required class on economics is still domestic level economics with few then learning about comparative advantages. There are a whole variety of GEs that students have to take, and anything 'international' is an advanced course that is not offered on a lower level.

Thanks for the comment. I think you are correct. Most undergraduate courses that focus on international tend to be political science rather than economics. I know I didn't study international trade theory until working on a masters degree in econ. All of which is to say that the problem I wrote about in high school continues at the next level as well.
