Classroom Activity to Accompany the Trade Infographic

Trade infographic

There are two ways to approach comparative advantage and opportunity cost. One approach, the output-per-fixed-input approach, appears on the infographic about trade. The output-per-fixed-input approach focuses on the number of products that an individual, business, or country can produce given a fixed amount of resources.

The alternate approach to calculating comparative advantage and opportunity cost is the input-per-fixed-output approach, which this supplemental activity uses.
