Absolute advantage is a monopoly that exists when a country is the only source of an item, only producer and efficiently producer of an item while comparative advantage is when a country specializes in products that it can supply more efficiently or at a lower cost than it can produce other items.

How do political issues affect international business? Political considerations are affects international business daily as governments enact tariffs, embargoes, or other types of trade restrictions in response to political events. Companies are often involved directly or indirectly in international politics. Political concerns lead a group of nations or firms to form a cartel which agrees to act as monopoly and not compete with each other, in order to generate a competitive advantages in world markets. 5. What is an import tariff? A quota? Dumping? How might a country use import tariffs and quotas to control its balance of trade and payments? Why can dumping result in the imposition of tariffs and quotas? Import tariff is a tax levied by a nation on goods imported into the country. A quota is a restriction on the number of units of a particular product that can be imported into a country which designed to protect the industries and jobs of the country imposing the quota. Dumping is the act of a country or business selling a products at less than what it costs to produce then so setting quotas or tariffs is to prohibit dumping. They formed General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade (GATT) which is trade agreement that provided a forum for tariff negotiations and a place where international trade problems could be discussed and resolved. The World Trade Organization (WTO), an international organization dealing with the rules of trade between nations and the goal is to help producers of goods and services and exporters and importers conduct their business. GATT and WTO were formed to control its balance of trade and payments. Dumping can result in the imposition of tariffs and quotas because permits quick entry into a market, when the domestic market for a firm’s product is too small to support an efficient level of production and technologically obsolete products that are no longer able to sold in the country of origin are dumped overseas. 9. Compare and contrast licensing, franchising, contract manufacturing, and outsourcing. Licensing is a trade agreement in which one company to use its company name, products, patents, brands, trademarks, raw materials, and production processes in exchange for a fee or royalty. Franchising is a form of licensing in which a company agrees to provide a franchisee a name, logo, methods of operation, advertising, products, and other elements in return for a financial commitment and the agreement to conduct business in accordance with the franchiser’s standard of operations. Contract manufacturing occur when a company hiring of a foreign company to produce a specified volume of the initiating company’s product to specification; the final product carries the domestic firm’s name. Outsourcing is transferring manufacturing or other to companies in countries where labor and supplies are less expensive. All of these are similar to helps companies to expand businesses into own country or oversea. Build Your Skills 1. When people in this country table a motion, they want to discuss it.
