1. Trade between two nations would not be possible if they have identical production possibilities frontier curves and identical community indifference curves.
2. The meaning of terms-of-trade index equals 150 is to purchase a certain number of imports, country A must give up 50% fewer exports and it could gain 50% more imports for a given number of exports. Terms of trade are determined by the relative strength of a nation’s demand for the other nation’s products. Using offer curves below to show the equilibrium’s terms-of-trade:

X* X






* Note:
OA : offer curve of country A
OB : offer curve of country B
(PX/PY)IE: International price at E
E : The equilibrium terms of trade
3. False. The autarky equilibrium occurs when available production meets the societal satisfaction at the highest level. In autarky equilibrium, a nation’s marginal rate of transformation (measured by the slope of its production possibilities schedule) equals the marginal rate of substitution (measured by the slope of its community indifference curve); in other words, relative price is equal to opportunity cost.
4. The Heckscher-Ohlin theory explains comparative advantage as the result of differences in countries’ relative abundance of various resources.
5. False. According to the factor-endowment theory, international specialization and trade cause a nation’s cheap resource to become more expensive and a nation’s expensive resource to become cheaper.
Home country is capital abundance; foreign country is labor abundance.

OPINIONS Trade between India and Pakistan: Potential Items and the MFN Status Abid Qamar∗ During the last several years, opening up of trade between India and Pakistan has become the most sought after question at many policy forums and among concerned groups. The issue has gained particular importance after India granted the Most Favored Nation (MFN) status to Pakistan, to comply with the principles of World Trade Organization (WTO) regime in 1995, and Pakistan’s reluctance in reciprocating so far. It is believed that increased trade relationship can play a vital role in normalizing the political relationship between the two countries. This will, therefore, benefit millions of people living in both countries as the resources would be diverted from less desirable areas, such as defense spending, to poverty alleviation initiatives. Given the likely impact of trade liberalization between the two countries, the unavailability of any established estimate of potential trade and the items likely to be traded is unfortunate. With a view to come up with some estimates based on some methodology, however simple it is, this note attempts to find the potential of trade between the two countries by identifying the potential items. It estimates the scope for exports and savings by substituting our imports from the rest......

...Chinese managed Float-format Summary : One of the ways China's economic rise was accomplished was by pegging its currency, the Chinese yuan to the United States dollar and instituting trading arrangements between the two nations. One of the arguments yuan against dollar is that it appears that China benefits more than the U.S. Manufacturers in the U.S. often put pressure on Congress to lobby China to appreciate its currency, citing the difficulty of competing against artificially cheap Chinese goods as a reason for change. Year after year, new bills are introduced by Congress demanding that China appreciate its currency so the yuan and dollar balance is more equalized. They claim the Chinese are protecting their trade superiority and the U.S. is forced to pay the price. Problem detecting : The problem from China's perspective is that appreciating the yuan could mean less foreign investment in China, deflation, lower wages and unemployment. Fewer exports will also diminish China's supply of dollars for investment, both inside and outside the country. China argues that the currency peg is meant to foster economic stability and abandoning the peg could result in an economic crisis. Some benefits of an undervalued yuan for the U.S. include lower prices for consumers, lower inflationary pressure and lower input prices for U.S. manufactures that use Chinese inputs. Alternatively, an undervalued yuan hurts U.S. industries that compete with cheap Chinese goods, thus hurting......

...Technology in International Trade Technology plays a major role in international trade. Databases, overnight delivery and faxes have opened the world market to not only larger companies but small ones too. To add to this globalization, companies and even competitors are combining and forming alliances to cut cost and increase the profit margin. Chrysler, General Motors and Ford have formed an alliance in research and development to avoid duplication. These alliances are not only with domestic companies but they also go over national lines. Companies are pushing for integration of the world economy in hope for increased profits and governments are beginning to listen. Since 1986 (GATT) General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade have taken the incitive to move towards the liberalization of international trade. GATT members agreed to reduce tariff and non-tariff trade barriers. From 1986 to the present due to GATT's lead many markets have been open to the United States increasing exports and increasing efficiency through competition. One of the most aggressive liberalization groups to follow GATT's lead is APEC (Asian Pacific Economic Community). APEC consist of 18 countries that account for 1/2 of the worlds output. The three largest economies Japan, China and the United States are members. APEC leaders are committed to achieving free and open trade for the......

... North American Free Trade Agreement   In January 1994, the United States, Mexico, and Canada implemented the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), forming the largest free trade zone in the world. The goal of NAFTA is to create better trading conditions through tariff reduction, removal of investment barriers, and improvement of intellectual property protection. NAFTA continues to gradually reduce tariffs on set dates and aims to eliminate all tariffs by the year 2004.      However, some of NAFTA's consequences do seem obviously disadvantageous. First, the reduced barriers bring an imbalanced relationship. For instance: the United States and our two neighbors, reduced barriers to trade have led to much larger trade deficits. In 2008, United States deficit with Canada was $78 billion. With Mexico, United States trade deficit was $65 billion in 2008. Second, due to the negtive effect of NAFTA, Mexico lost 1.3 million farm jobs. When NAFTA removed tariffs, corn and other grains were exported to Mexico below cost. Rural Mexican farmers could not compete. At the same time, Mexico reduced its subsidies to farmers from 33.2% of total farm income in 1990 to 13.2% in 2001.      以下为advantage   How does NAFTA benefit trade? First, it eliminatestariffs. This reduces inflation by decreasing the costs of imports. Second, NAFTA creates agreements on international rights for business investors. This reduces the cost of trade, which spurs investment and......

...In short, mercantilists posited fundamental disharmony among competing economic interests domestically and internationally. The disharmony was so acute that governments needed to regulate and control all aspects of economic life. Two concrete examples illustrate typical mercantilist policies. Navigation acts required all trade to be carried in ships of the regulating country. In this way a country could collect income from all trade conducted between it and other countries regardless of the origin of the goods traded. (British use of such navigation acts provided American colonists one irritant in their relations with the mother country that would eventually lead to the Declaration of Independence.) A second example of mercantilist policy was the chartering of trading companies granted monopoly privileges by the government. The British East India Company established in 1600 is the classic example of such an arrangement.3 One of the earliest challenges to mercantilist ideas was provided by Adam Smith’s Wealth of Nations published in 1776. His school subsequently labeled economic liberalism or laissez-faire, sought to explain why mercantilist regulation was unnecessary and indeed might be positively harmful to the economy. Underlying the ideas of economic liberalism are two assumptions that provide a stark contrast to those made by mercantilists. First, economic growth does occur which means that economic competition is not zero-sum and conflict over finite......

...on the back of any food product that may contain them. With laws that govern the usage of food additives and GMO’s, consumers can then “vote with their dollars”, having a big influence on what type of items will be produced.  I think the fair trade philosophy is most ideal in todays world. Educated consumers want to buy products that are manufactured with no cruelty and where equal rights for the people who construct the products, are incorporated in their daily activity. In 2011, Apple was the headline of many news article that spoke about the conditions of the factories where Apple products are produced. Many people were disgusted with the way workers in the Foxconn factories where treated with even reports of people committing suicide because of the brutal work conditions. I think the fair trade philosophy will work great for the global economy because it will create better work environments for manufacturing facilities, causing more consumers to feel guilt free about purchasing products from companies that have a history of promoting forced and child labor. For the government, I think the free trade philosophy will be most ideal. Free trade will promote the economy by allowing consumers to spend more on frivolous items. Free trade proponents suggest that increased competition increases the availability of innovative jobs as companies strive to create new products and expand to target export markets. More jobs and more spending creates more money for the government. ...

...that the tax rate in 2010 is 28 percent. I t is obvious that the tax rate now is the lowest it has ever been in the UK (UK trade and investment, 2013). Besides, the pound sterling is a free-floating currency and is easily convertible with other international currencies (Research and matic, 2015). One the other hand According to Key Limited (2015), supporting tourism potential, improving public health and ensuring consumer safety are key political concerns within the UK restaurants market. It shows that tourism is an essential element which contributes about £115bn to the UK economy in 2010 and the current Government also has relevant policy to enhance this contribution. Guaranteeing consumer safety is another important part although it is a big challenge for UK government. A report about BBC cited into Key Limited (2015) shows that only in the quick-service sector, as many as 33% of Dixy Chicken outlets and 29.7% of Chicken Cottage outlets received such a rating at last inspection. Finally, the government also has policy to promote public health.

Trades a legally binding agreement to buy or sell a commodity or financial instrument sometime in the future at a price agreed upon at the time of the trade. While actual physical delivery of the underlying assets seldom takes place, futures contracts are nonetheless standardized according to delivery specifications, including the quality, quantity, and time and location. The only variable is price, which is discovered through the trading process. In this study we are trying to find out the opportunities and challenges of futures trading in India through PEST analysis. One of the key benefits of trading in the futures markets is that it offers the trader financial leverage, which is the ability of a trader to control large Dollar/Rupee amounts of a commodity with a comparatively small amount of capital. As such, leverage magnifies both gains and losses in the futures market. Another key benefit of futures trading is liquidity, which is a characteristic of a market to absorb large transactions without a substantial change in the price. Liquid markets easily match a buyer with a seller, enabling traders to quickly transact their business at a fair price. Most of the futures markets are considered to be “transparent” because the order flow is open and fair. Everyone has an equal opportunity for the trade. When an order enters the marketplace, the order fills at the best price for the customer, regardless of the size of the order. With the advent of...

...Trade is the process of purchasing and procuring of goods and services with the object of selling them at a profit. Trade means buying and selling of goods. It involves the exchange of commodities for money or money's worth. It is the means by which people sell those goods which they do not need. Traders serve as the link between producers and consumers. They help in direct­ing the flow of goods to the most profitable markets. They, also bring about the equitable distribution of goods. In the absence of traders, producers will have to go in search of consumers. Trade is the nucleus of commerce. Other parts of commerce such as transport, insurance, warehousing, banking and advertising revolve around trade. Trade may be classified into home trade and foreign trade. Home trade may further be sub­divided into wholesale trade and retail trade. Similarly, foreign trade made by sub-divided into import, export and entrepot trade.

...tariff or tax on a good are that it will raise the domestic price of the good, which will help the domestic seller make more money from the foreign buyer. A downside to placing tariffs on goods is that it makes the domestic buyer pay more and can put a limit on how much the domestic buyer can buy. Quotas have benefits and disadvantages as well. A benefit from placing a quota on a good is that it could create a surplus, but could only be for those who have the license to import the good. A disadvantage of placing a quota on a good is that it may raise the price on an item and could possibly put a restriction or restrictions on trade with other countries. Although there are benefits and losses to international trade when it comes to tariffs and quotas it still can help a countries standard of living in the trade is done properly and within the World Trade Organizations guidelines....
