'The Feenstra/Taylor text is consistently one of the most well written texts in international economics. They present material in a way that is consistent across chapters in the text and with other classes students take in economics.' - Mark Scanlan, Stephen F. Austin State University 'Currently, the best textbook in International Macroeconomic[s] for undergraduates...' - Carlos Pulido, Arizona State University - Tempe 'One of the reasons why I choose to use this textbook is because of the quality of the problems at the end of each chapter and the numerous (rich) choices they give me in assigning a problem to my students.' - Bedassa Tadesse, University of Minnesota - Duluth 'The explanations of difficult concepts are the best in this book. The graphs are clear and well supported with discussion for students to understand how they work.' - Anthony Delmond, The University of Tennessee - Martin
