Introducing TradeSift

Our Trade Analysis tool is designed for trade analysis education within the marketplace!

TradeSift software complements any course or work in International Economics or Regional Integration; allowing deeper understanding of theoretical concepts and far greater employability and market prospects!

What Does TradeSift Do?

TradeSift Edu allows you to analyse Trade, Tariff and GDP data up to the 4 digit level using various diagnostic indicators, including Revealed Comparative Advantage, Intra Industry Trade or the Finger-Kreinin Index.

How Does TradeSift Help You?

Insightful analysis becomes possible with TradeSift. With TradeSift we are able to help you meet the demands of turning raw trade data and economic theory into practical economic analysis.
Many critics of current economics teaching complain that students know too little about real world economies and data about them. Tradesift gives you both transferable data analysis skills and empirical insights into actual patterns of trade flows, by region by product etc. Its analytical concepts are strictly tied to statistical counterparts. These skills will be highly useful for work as an economist.

We hope you will enjoy this course and using TradeSift.
