Abstract

This paper reviews the branch of literature that applies models developed in international trade theory (Microeconomics) to explain phenomena found in international finance (Macroeconomics). Among all international trade models, the New New Trade Theory with productivity heterogeneity across firms in the same industry has proved to be a powerful tool to bridge the gap between international trade and finance. As a result, this review focuses on several papers in this nascent field, where the behavior of macroeconomic indicators are generated from sound microeconomic foundation.
