In a world as globalized as the current one, knowledge of the international environment has become a requirement for those who operate in the economic reality. In this sense, this subject tries to offer an overview of the features, problems and trends of the International Economics. This seeks to understand how the world economy works in a context of continuous change, while addressing the analysis of the current problems faced by international economic policy in its quest to improve the living standards of the population.
The study of the international economic environment that carries out this subject takes as a basis the economic models that are addressed in the subjects of "Introduction to Economics" and "Intermediate Macroeconomics", trying to interpret the economic facts in light of said theoretical models and the evolutionary dynamic provided by the subject "Business History". Likewise, the study of international economic reality, while requiring the use of data processing techniques, is based on the contents of the subject "Business Statistics".
This subject constitutes a frame of reference to face the study of the subject of "Spanish Economics", which the study plan places in the following course. It would be difficult to understand the economic problems of a country, the current trends in the markets or the framework in which its international relations develop without having a good knowledge of the constraints it imposes and the opportunities offered by the world economy.
Finally, it constitutes a starting point for the study of the processes of economic integration and concretely of the one carried out by the European countries, which is treated in a much broader and more detailed way in the optional subject of "Economics of European Union".
