7 Why Trade With Other Nations? 1.No nation can produce all that it needs 2.Other nations need to trade in order to meet their needs; mutually beneficial exchange 3.Some nations have less natural Resources and more Technology, or vice-versa WHY TRADE with OTHER NATIONS LG1 3-7

8 Why Trade With Other Nations? Countries with abundant natural resources (like Venezuela or Russia) need technological resources from other countries (like Japan). Global trade allows countries to produce what they make best and buy what they need from others. Free Trade -- The movement of goods and services among nations without political or economic barriers. TRADING with OTHER NATIONS For Example: LG1 3-8

LG1 3-9

10 The Theories of Comparative and Absolute Advantage Comparative Advantage: A country should sell the products it produces most efficiently and buy from other countries the products it cannot. For Ex. United States: Software and engineering Absolute Advantage: A country has a monopoly on producing a specific product or is able to produce it more efficiently than all other countries. For Ex. South Africa : Diamonds COMPARATIVE and ABSOLUTE ADVANTAGE LG1 3-10

11 Getting Involved in Global Trade Small businesses may be the key in global job growth. Only 1% of U.S. small businesses export, yet they account for 30% of total U.S. exports. GOING GLOBAL with a SMALL BUSINESS LG2 President Obama wants small businesses to help double exports by

He transformed a coffee shop in Seattle to mimic European cafes. GETTING INVOLVED in IMPORTING LG2 3-13

14 Exporting Goods and Services Exporting provides a great boost to the U.S. economy. It is estimated that every $1 billion in U.S. exports generate over 7,000 U.S. jobs. GETTING INVOLVED in EXPORTING LG2 3-14

15 Measuring Global Trade Balance of Trade -- The total value of a nation’s exports compared to its imports measured over a particular period. Trade Surplus (Favorable) -- When the value of a country’s exports is more than that of its imports. Trade Deficit (Unfavorable) -- When the value of a country’s exports is less than that of its imports. HOW to MEASURE GLOBAL TRADE LG2 3-15

16 Measuring Global Trade Balance of Payments -- The difference between money coming into a country (from exports) and money leaving the country (from imports) plus other money flows. The goal is to have more money flowing into a country than out – a favorable balance. An unfavorable balance is when more money flows out of a country. BALANCE of PAYMENTS LG2 3-16

17 Measuring Global Trade Dumping -- Selling products in a foreign country at lower prices than those charged in the producing country.
