Trade Talks Episode 71: Money Matters for Trade

Soumaya Keynes and Chad Bown sit down with Kalina Manova (University College London) to talk about how corporate finance affects international trade. They discuss her research on how access to finance can be a source of comparative advantage, how the financial crisis of 2008–09 contributed to a collapse in global trade, as well as the role that multinational companies sometimes play to help emerging economies overcome poor local financial markets in order to engage in the global economy.
