Sample text

This, it turns out, is unlikely. To understand why, we must turn to a more sophisticated notion of trade, comparative advantage. We do this in the next chapter. The notion of the gains from trade also has its limits. It suggests that countries as a whole mutually gain from trade. It does not suggest, however, that everyone within a country will gain from trade. As you have already seen in the example of this chapter, producers of rice in Japan lose from trade, and consumers of rice in Vietnam lose from FURTHER READING AND WEB RESOURCES 29 trade.

The upward sloping supply curves reflect the positive relationship between price and quantity supplied. The difference in supply conditions positions Vietnam’s supply curve farther to the right than Japan’s supply curve. The intersections of the supply and demand curves determine the equilibrium prices of rice in the two markets. The two prices are recorded as P V and P J in the figure. Because no trade is involved, these two prices are known in international economics as autarky prices. Autarky is a situation in which a country has no economic relationships with other countries.

It is a rare situation. More commonly, countries engage in both importing and exporting relationships with other countries of the world economy. In this chapter, you have begun to understand why. Absolute advantage reflects differences among countries in technology or factor conditions. A country with better technology and larger endowments of the factors necessary to produce an item is more likely to have absolute advantage in the production of that item. It is also more likely to export that item.
