Abstract: This thesis examines four different topics in the area of international trade. Chapter 2 uses Brazilian firm-level data to study the relation between quality upgrading and pricing across firms and destination countries. Chapter 3 studies the links between income inequality and the patterns of trade and export prices. Chapter 4 analyses how GATT/WTO (General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade/World Trade Organization) membership affects the price volatility of import and export countries. Finally, Chapter 5 looks at the Jewish Diaspora to study the effect of Jewish networks on trade flows. Each Chapter is treated in a separate, self-contained article, and chapters are connected through the microeconomic theory and microeconometric methods applied. The thesis contributes to the literature on trade flows and trade prices, firm heterogeneity, product quality, and networks in international trade.
