Should developing countries embrace international economic integration (i.e., international trade and investment) in order to attain higher rates of economic development? State clearly whether you are arguing developing countries should or should not embrace international economic integration. Whichever side of the debate you choose, describe the logic behind both sides of the debate (i.e., in addition to developing your case, also describe the strongest possible case for the counterargument) by reference to Module 2 readings. Clearly make the case for why the logic of the arguments on one side of the debate is more persuasive than the logic of the arguments on the other side. Also consider relevant empirical evidence and make the case for why it supports one side of the debate more than the other. Your post should be based on the arguments of the authors and the empirical evidence from Module 2 readings. Clearly identify the readings you are citing by the author’s name and page.
… the post should be 3-4 paragraphs
