Economix - International Trade

Top of page

Each country takes advantage of its available resources by specializing in specific types of production based on its areas of comparative advantage. Producers and governments in countries try to make rational and effective use of resources to produce goods and services at competitive prices for markets around the world. All countries benefit from participating in international trade. Some countries and groups favour freer world-trading conditions with fewer or no trade barriers. Others favour more protectionist measures. In a global economy, trade can stimulate economic development and can help improve some of the weaker economies. Volume 4, Program 1 of the series.
