Business Terms and Jargon Explained

What is Comparative Advantage

A country or region has a comparative advantage in the production of those goods and services in which its relative efficiency is greatest. Comparative advantage matters because a country or region can maximise its consumption of goods and services by concentrating its resources in the production of goods and services in which it has a comparative advantage, and trading its surplus production with those countries or regions which specialise in the production of goods and services in which they have a comparative advantage.
