refers to the ability of a party (an individual, a firm, or a country) to produce a particular good or service at a lower opportunity cost than another party. It is the ability to produce a product with the highest relative efficiency given all the other products that could be produced. 1 2 It can be contrasted with absolute advantage which refers to the ability of a party to produce a particular good at a lower absolute cost than another. Comparative advantage explains how trade can create value for both parties even when one can produce all goods with fewer resources than the other. The net benefits of such an outcome are called

Critical Studies 6 - Elizabeth Currid
Gatekeepers, Hobbyists, Intermediaries and so forth define the success of Art/Culture as described by Elizabeth Currid. A reading I enjoyed, which as of late- is becoming a regular thing with my attachment to Tze Ming Mok's 'Race You There'. If Mok was my past, Currid is my present. Although not a present I am particularly settled with. These Gatekeepers, Hobbyists, etc. all go through a number of systems Currid mentions- but yet never actually defines the system itself. To form my own opinion of these systems, they are purely based on (like I just said) opinion. If it is a curator, a dealer and so fourths opinion ... market research, surveys and trends


Free! Why $0.00 Is the Future of Business
a bitter anticapitalist, and a salesman of cork-lined bottle caps. It was 1895, and despite ideas, energy, and wealthy parents, he had little to show for his work. He blamed the evils of market competition. Indeed, the previous year he had published a book, The Human Drift , which argued that all industry should be taken over by a single corporation owned by the public and that millions of Americans should live in a giant city called Metropolis powered by Niagara Falls. His boss at the bottle cap company, meanwhile, had just one piece of advice: Invent something people use and throw away. One day, while he was shaving with a ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

The Economics of Libertarianism, Revealed
It is both the best and worst of times for libertarians. On the plus side, real, live politicians who might conceivably get elected call themselves libertarians. On the negative side, true libertarians have lost their ancient luxury of being able to avoid any responsibility for the gaffes and errors of political leaders. Libertarianism rests on two bedrock beliefs: human freedom is a great good and the public sector tends to screw things up. The first belief is based more on faith than empirical result; the second derives from millennia of human experience. The increased appeal of libertarianism today reflects a nonpartisan view ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
Doomsday Capitalism virus is spreading
ARROYO GRANDE, Calif. (MarketWatch) -- Warning: "Capitalism as we knew it is dead." What a grabber! A flashing neon sign on Times Square near Morgan Stanley? No, it's the headline on a promo ad for the new book co-authored by the highly regarded American editor of the world's leading business magazine, the Economist. Yes, "capitalism as we knew it is dead." Who killed it? The usual suspects. Everybody. And it was easy. First we killed democracy. Yes, democracy as we knew it is also dead. Magazine covers espousing the death of equities usually spell recoveries, Bob O'Brien suggests. Next ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

An externality exists whenever one individual's actions affect the well-being of another individual -- whether for the better or for the worse -- in ways that need not be paid for according to the existing definition of property rights in the society. An "external diseconomy," "external cost" or "negative externality" results when part of the cost of producing a good or service is born by a firm or household other than the producer or purchaser.
