We shall employ the economic analyses of infant industry argument and some game theories such as the Tragedy of the Commons and the Prisoner’s Dilemma to assess the effect of the possible trade between the two countries.
International trade traces its roots from the modern economic concepts popularized by economists such as David Ricardo.
Particularly, it has its foundation on the “principles of comparative advantage” which supports international trade (Mankiw).
Introduced by David Ricardo in 1817 through his book On the Principles of Political Economy and Taxation, comparative advantage posits that trade can create value for both countries even if one has the fewer resources in the production of all goods. Using the production possibilities frontier, Ricardo was able to prove this, achieving a significant breakthrough in the field of international economics.
