Comparative Advantage and Terms of Trade -ACDC Econ 1.3

1965 ratings | 309466 views
Individuals and countries benefit from trade. Even though it isn't very realistic, simplified examples like this will help you understand the idea of comparative advantage. Make sure to calcite the per unit opportunity cost so you can see which country should specialize in which product. Also, make sure to watch the second half to learn about terms of trade.

Sounds like Global socialism to me .. capitalism sounds better to me. supply and demand determines cost..

You forgot to factor in opportunity cost of Chinese theft of US intellectual property and espionage

It`s a great video, but I didn`t get how did you calculate the 4 toys price, at the end.
Jose Carlos Montemayor (11 months ago)
Mr. Clifford, how exactly are terms of trade calculated? Like, not in the real world, just in Econ class. Is there any way or any formula that can be used beyond guessing and checking different amounts of each product? Thank you so much.

Little hack for yall: if you want to find the answer faster, CROSS MULTIPLY and whichever pair of goods has the higher number from the cross multiplication is the best combination. In this example there are 2 possibilities, the US produces toys (30 toys) and China produces toys (4 toys) and the US produces planes (10 planes) and China makes toys (20 toys). For the first option: take 30 toys x 4 planes= 120 the second option: 10planes x 20 toys = 200 200 is the bigger number so we know that the USA making planes and China making toys is the best combination. Hope this makes sense. (This is the most helpful advice my econ teacher ever gave me)

xvictinixx (2 years ago)
I'm just confused as to what costs what in regards to the toys or plane for which country. I'm cognitively impaired as the school systems call it. Could you do a version where you indicate exactly what you are taking away from which country? To me, you were just saying words and putting random scenarios on the screen.

Everybody trades, even Mr.Clifford. Since people dont have the time to learn to do everything(here economics), he specializes in one thing(econ again) and trades his resources (here, time and energy) with other people(viewers, people like us) for the thing that he needs(views and/or Ad Revenue). ;)

Please dont refer to Hong Kong China. It is unfair to all the Hong Kong people who fear China. China are kidnapping booksellers and corrupting their elections. As any person from Hong Kong will tell you, they do not want to be associated with China. Wǔmáo Dǎng are just spamming the internet for people to accept they are together.
bluefloyd (1 year ago)
so you are saying Hong Kong is not a part of China? Any person would say that they do not want to be associated with China? you have no data to support this. Wake up, brainwashed dude by the Western media.

hong kong is a part of china no matter if u like it or not

I don't understand how you came up with the numbers for the terms of trade.  Why 4 planes?
No Role Modelz (1 year ago)
Aronia McLean it's the exchange rate of goods and services. If you want to determine how much of say good y a country should receive after trading good x, it's in the interval of opportunity costs for good y
Aronia McLean (1 year ago)
No Role Modelz do you understand he definition of terms of trade because I don’t and my AP exam is soon! Someone plshelp
No Role Modelz (1 year ago)
Jase Arthur how did you determine the interval was 3 and 5 specifically?
Vanessa Shehu (1 year ago)
Zaraish Dhanani of course its an example. the person is looking for the domain of those numbers. like 3 and 5 in the example.

I am thrilled that someone like you from the west says "Hong Kong, China". Call me a patriot if you like but I am so offended whenever someone calls Hong Kong a country (I often find this situation in textbooks as well).

Troll. But if you really cared so much, then please know that people like you are another one of the main reasons why Hong Kongers want to dissociate themselves from Mainland people. Not only Hong Kongers, but people of Chinese heritage in South East Asia as well (i.e. Malaysia, Singapore, etc.) Patriotism is cool, you love China so much but what you're doing only tarnishes the name of your beloved country. I'm always amazed by the competition for superiority when it comes to HK VS Mainland. It always results in personal insults because they feel threatened by their inability to form proper counter-arguments. It comes from both sides, but on the internet, the aggressive ones are usually the Mainlanders. They'll degrade you for having a different opinion. Hong Kongers get really frustrated and will argue with you for not having the same viewpoint but won't be bothered to do anything more, because they at least respect your personal decisions. Those who have actually left the mainland before know to be more respectful, are smarter and less biased with their arguments, half the time handling it better than Hong Kongers now, actually. Show some class and come back with proper counter-arguments if you really want to represent your country in the positive light that you make it out to be. Right now, you're just hurting your cause, and a lot of other Chinese people have had enough of this kind of second-hand embarrassment.
right on point chinese TOURISTS, not all chinese, have a tendency to be disrespectful, i live in america but i even can see how chinese act in other countries and in japan. not all their fault as many do not have all the public knowledge of culture, but i mean if your gonna travel somewhere you should learn what to do... shame to also white tourists. however koreans and japanese who have a grudge (dont blame them what we and the government of japan did was terrible) but if japanese went to korea they would act rightly and same vice versa
