. •The sum of consumer and producer surplus measures the total benefits that buyers and sellers receive.EQUILIBRIUM WITHOUT TRADE •Domestic price adjusts to balance demand and supply.

WORLD PRICE “The price of a good that prevails in the world market for that good” .

ABSOLUTE ADVANTAGE If a country has an absolute advantage in the production of a good or service. it means it is the most efficient producer of that product.

.MODELS OF EXCHANGE RATE • Purchasing Power Parity (PPP): It suggests that purchasing power of different currencies should be the same when converted to a common currency value through the exchange rate.

LAW OF ONE PRICE: When converted to a common currency value through the exchange rate. . the price of identical goods should be the same across national boundaries.

EXCHANGE RATE: • The price of one currency expressed in units of another currency. .

& that the exchange rate is nothing more than the ratio of the price levels of a common bucket of goods expressed in each currency.2 FORMS OF PPP: • The ABSOLUTE PPP model suggests that the law of one price holds because of the presence of arbitrage processes. .

.2 FORMS OF PPP: • The RELATIVE PPP model focuses on the importance of relative inflation rates as a determinant of the exchange rate. It suggests that if the rate of inflation in the domestic economy exceeds that of the foreign country. the currency will depreciate in line with the inflation differential.

THE JOB ARGUMENT • Trade with other countries destroys domestic jobs. • Workers in each country will eventually find jobs in the industry in which that country has a comparative advantage. • Yet free trade creates jobs at the same time that it destroys them. .

.NATIONAL – SECURITY ARGUMENT: • Free trade often argue that the industry is vital for national security.

(every country has its own governing rules and business rules.THE UNFAIR COMPETITION ARGUMENT • An assumption that free trade is only favorable when all the countries plays with the same rules. • Free trade may not be favorable for the producers. • In-fact neither the rules are same nor they can be same. .

• Response to threat can result in freer trade.THREAT AS A BARGAINING TOOL. • A threat of restriction can be used as a tool to bargain. i. • Policy makers beliefs that trade restriction can be useful when we bargain with our trading partners. .e. I’ll impose tariff on my exports on steel if you fail to remove tariff on your wheat supplies to me.

. Backing from the threat is a “IMAGE SPOILER” of the country. • Backing from the threat may harm the prestige of the country in the international market.• If the threat doesn't works country has to make a difficult choices.


. its called bilateral approach.UNILATERAL AND BILATERAL APPROACH • Removing trade and restrictions on its own is called unilateral approach. • When two countries with mutual consent remove sanctions and restrictions and agree to open trade. • Iran also removed sanctions and restrictions on trade and has decided to export goods to America and also import the goods from USA. • USA recently removed sanctions on its own to trade with Iran.

MULTILATERAL APPROACH • A country can reduce its own restrictions and sanctions while the other countries do the same. • International organizations play their roles in promoting trade and negotiations between the countries to curb sanctions. • Multilateral trade is a trade bargain with its trading partners to reduce restrictions around the world. .

(WTO) .INTERNATIONAL ORGANTIZATIONS • North America Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) • General Agreement on Tariff and Trade(GATT) • World Trade Organizations.

ADAM SMITH & FREE TRADE • Mutual gains from voluntary exchange of existing goods • Increased competition • The division of labor • Better us of skills and resources in different countries. 1/3/17 .
