Beyond “Just”

At the cross section of economics and international trade lies the theory of comparative advantage. Comparative advantage is the ability of one country to produce a particular good or service at a lower cost over another country. Even if one country is more efficient in the production of all the goods in question over another country, both countries will still benefit by trading with one another so long as there is some margin of superiority.
