The balance of trade (or trade balance) is any gap between a nation’s dollar value of its exports, or what its producers sell abroad, and a nation’s dollar worth of imports, or the foreign-made products and services that households and businesses purchase. Recall from The Macroeconomic Perspective that if exports exceed imports, the economy is said to have a trade surplus. Because the model in this paper links the accumulation of human capital to the changes in the distribution of income that occur as a result of trade, it is related to recent work that has examined the role that international trade has played in increasing the wage gap between skilled and unskilled workers in the U.S.

Further, the increase in improvement in technology (A) or what is also referred to as increase in total factor productivity causes a shift in the production function. Foreign direct investment (FDI) is an integral part of an open and effective international economic system and a major catalyst to development.

Recently substantial theoretical progress has been made using three different approaches. These are the Marshallian approach, where economies of scale are assumed external to firms. The paper incorporates the formation of human capital into the two-factor, two-good model of international trade.

Workers can choose between being unskilled and earning the corresponding wage or obtaining an education that enables them to earn a higher wage. The wages of skilled and unskilled labor and the direct and indirect costs of education are all determined endogenously, along with the Cited by: The idea is that patterns of specialization develop almost by accident and that these patterns persist because of positive feedback.

This is known as the increasing-returns model of international trade. “Increasing returns” means that the more of something you produce, the more efficient you get at. an increase in global social welfare – the “gains from trade”. Relative differences in countries’ resource endowments are key to the standard version of the Heckscher-Ohlin theory of international trade.

By increasing the size of the market, trade openness allows economies to better capture the potential benefits of increasing returns to scale and economies of specialization (Alesina et al.,Bond et al., ).Cited by: According to Solow’s stability argument, capital will increase more rapidly than labour and because of diminishing returns to capital, the capital-output ratio increases.

The ratio will continue to increase until it reaches 4 and the economy returns to the balanced growth rate of 1% per annum. increasing the amount of capital available per hour worked.
