6 ©2004 Prentice Hall6-6 The largest component of the annual $1.5 trillion trade in international services is travel and tourism

7 ©2004 Prentice Hall6-7 Classical Country-Based Trade Theories Mercantilism Absolute Advantage Comparative Advantage Comparative Advantage with Money Relative Factor Endowments

8 ©2004 Prentice Hall6-8 Mercantilism A countrys wealth is measured by its holdings of gold and silver A countrys goal should be to enlarge holdings of gold and silver by –Promoting exports –Discouraging imports

9 ©2004 Prentice Hall6-9 Modern Mercantilism Neomercantilists or protectionists –American Federation of Labor-Congress of Industrial Organizations –Textile manufacturers –Steel companies –Sugar growers –Peanut farmers

10 ©2004 Prentice Hall6-10 Disadvantages of Mercantilism Confuses the acquisition of treasure with the acquisition of wealth Weakens the country because it robs individuals of the ability –To trade freely –To benefit from voluntary exchanges Forces countries to produce products it would otherwise not in order to minimize imports

11 ©2004 Prentice Hall6-11 Absolute Advantage Export those goods and services for which a country is more productive than other countries Import those goods and services for which other countries are more productive than it is

12 ©2004 Prentice Hall6-12 Table 6.1 The Theory of Absolute Advantage: An Example Wine21 Clock radios 35 France Japan OUTPUT PER HOUR OF LABOR

13 ©2004 Prentice Hall6-13 Absolute Advantages Flaw What happens to trade if one country has an absolute advantage in both products? No trade would occur

14 ©2004 Prentice Hall6-14 Comparative Advantage Produce and export those goods and services for which it is relatively more productive than other countries Import those goods and services for which other countries are relatively more productive than it is

15 ©2004 Prentice Hall6-15 Differences between Comparative and Absolute Advantage Absolute versus relative productivity differences Comparative advantage incorporates the concept of opportunity cost –Value of what is given up to get the good

16 ©2004 Prentice Hall6-16 Table 6.2 The Theory of Comparative Advantage: An Example Wine41 Clock radios 65 France Japan OUTPUT PER HOUR OF LABOR

17 ©2004 Prentice Hall6-17 Comparative Advantage with Money One is better off specializing in what one does relatively best Produce and export those goods and services one is relatively best able to produce Buy other goods and services from people who are better at producing them

19 ©2004 Prentice Hall6-19 Relative Factor Endowments Heckscher-Ohlin Theory What determines the products for which a country will have a comparative advantage? –Factor endowments vary among countries –Goods differ according to the types of factors that are used to produce them

20 ©2004 Prentice Hall6-20 Relative Factor Endowments_2 A country will have a comparative advantage in producing products that intensively use resources (factors of production) it has in abundance –China: labor –Saudi Arabia: oil –Argentina: wheat

21 ©2004 Prentice Hall6-21 Figure 6.3 U.S. Imports and Exports, 1947: The Leontief Paradox

22 ©2004 Prentice Hall6-22 Modern Firm-Based Trade Theories Country Similarity Theory Product Life Cycle Theory Global Strategic Rivalry Theory Porters National Competitive Advantage

23 ©2004 Prentice Hall6-23 Growth of Firm-Based Theories Growing importance of MNCs Inability of the country-based theories to explain and predict the existence and growth of intraindustry trade Failure of Leontief and others to empirically validate country-based Heckscher-Ohlin Theory

24 ©2004 Prentice Hall6-24 Firm-Based Trade Theories Incorporate additional factors into explanations of trade flows –Quality –Technology –Brand names –Customer quality

25 ©2004 Prentice Hall6-25 Country Similarity Theory Explains the phenomenon of intraindustry trade –Trade between two countries of goods produced by the same industry Japan exports Toyotas to Germany Germany exports BMWs to Japan

26 ©2004 Prentice Hall6-26 Country Similarity Theory_2 Trade results from similarities of preferences among consumers in countries that are at the same stage of economic development Most trade in manufactured goods should be between countries with similar per capita incomes

27 ©2004 Prentice Hall6-27 Product Life Cycle Theory Describes the evolution of marketing strategies Stages –New product –Maturing product –Standardized product

31 ©2004 Prentice Hall6-31 Global Strategic Rivalry Theory Firms struggle to develop sustainable competitive advantage Advantage provides ability to dominate global marketplace Focus: strategic decisions firms use to compete internationally

32 ©2004 Prentice Hall6-32 Sustaining Competitive Advantage Owning intellectual property rights Investing in research and development Achieving economies of scale or scope Exploiting the experience curve

33 ©2004 Prentice Hall6-33 Porters National Competitive Advantage Success in trade comes from the interaction of four country and firm specific elements –Factor conditions –Demand conditions –Related and supporting industries –Firm strategy, structure, and rivalry

41 ©2004 Prentice Hall6-41 International Investment Theories Ownership Advantages Internalization Dunnings Eclectic Theory

42 ©2004 Prentice Hall6-42 Ownership Advantages A firm owning a valuable asset that creates a competitive advantage domestically can use that advantage to penetrate foreign markets through FDI Why FDI and not other methods?

43 ©2004 Prentice Hall6-43 Internalization Theory FDI is more likely to occur when transaction costs with a second firm are high Transaction costs: costs associated with negotiating, monitoring, and enforcing a contract

44 ©2004 Prentice Hall6-44 Dunnings Eclectic Theory FDI reflects both international business activity and business activity internal to the firm 3 conditions for FDI –Ownership advantage –Location advantage –Internalization advantage
