    schema:description ""This book provides the most comprehensive treatment to date of the role of 'product variety' in international trade. Starting with an overview of the main theoretical concepts, Robert Feenstra takes the reader step by step through the measurement and identification challenges of empirical work that tries to quantify the gains from variety. The book is a must-read not only for graduate students, but for anyone who is interested in familiarizing herself with the latest developments in international trade."--Penny Goldberg, Professor of Economics, Princeton University -- Book Jacket." ;
