International Trade Is The Exchange Of Goods And Services Between Countries

- At its simplest, international trade is the exchange of goods and services between countries. About a fourth of all goods and services produced in the world are exported to another country (Yuan & Guanghua, 2015). This type of trade gives rise to a world economy, in which prices, or supply and demand, affect and are affected by global events.

Exploring the Efficacy of International Organizations in Russia's Acquistion of Crimea

- ... As Steven Erlanger writes in The New York Times, the Crimea crisis “has suddenly revived the North Atlantic Treat Organization’s central role as a counterweight to Moscow” and, that the crisis is “a complete reminder of why NATO is useful” (Erlanger, NYTimes).

Rather, NATO, thus far, is seen as an important, symbolic counterpart to Russia, and though this relationship may not result in the recovery of Crimea, it will certainly constrain the actions of Russia in the sense that the legitimacy of Moscow’s actions will be constantly denied by the Western international community....   [tags: international relations, UN, EU, NATO ]

The International Monetary System Of Nigeria

This is an effort to protect the value of Nigeria’s currency, the Naira and in doing so, the central bank is likely to reduce investor interest in the region and thus Nigeria will likely continue to see comparatively low amounts of FDI due to adverse costs, complications with imports and other...   [tags: European Union, International trade]
