These notes synthesize contributions from a wide spectrum of writers concerning competitive trade models. They
bear the mark of two of my own teachers, Jagdish Bhagwati and Ron Findlay, as well as writings too numerous to
note here. The reader may also like to consult the excellent texts by R. Caves, R. Jones, and J. Frankel, World Trade
and Payments, or that by P. Krugman and M. Obstfeld, International Economics: Theory and Policy. More
advanced treatments of many of the topics may be found in J. Bhagwati, Arvind Panagariya, and T.N. Srinivasan,
Lectures on International Trade, or E. Helpman and P. Krugman, Market Structure and Foreign Trade.   Tell A Friend
