Theories of trade openness

tion suggests that a 10 percent increase in total trade openness reduces talks about an “overabundance of theories” of wage setting and unemployment.

The impact of trade openness on economic growth is a subject of debate in the existing literature. The impact was found to be positive in some studies and nonsignificant or even negative in others. The mixed results might be attributed to analytical framework and country specific characteristics. The origins of this view are rooted in a large class of theories of international trade predicting that openness to trade increases specialisation. Because specialisation (or lack of diversification) in production tends to increase a country’s exposure to shocks specific to the sectors (or range of products) in which the country specialises, it is generally inferred that trade increases macro volatility. Comparative advantage shares many of the characteristics of globalization, the theory that worldwide openness in trade will improve the standard of living in all countries. Comparative advantage is the opposite of absolute advantage—a country’s ability to produce more goods at a lower unit cost than other countries. Conventional trade theory determines the pattern of international trade and the distribution of welfare across countries in a static setting. It relates trade patterns to comparative advantage, and suggests that for nations that engage in trade, each will specialize in the production of goods in which it Trade openness refers to the outward or inward orientation of a given country's economy. Outward orientation refers to economies that take significant advantage of the opportunities to trade with other countries. While trade openness promoted convergence in the 1960s and 1970s, we find that since 1980 the benefits of trade accrued mostly to the richer economies, with little benefit to the less developed According to the theories given by them, when a country enters in foreign trade, it benefits from specialization and efficient resource allocation. The foreign trade also helps in bringing new technologies and skills that lead to higher productivity.

The most important fact about the relationship between trade openness and economic growth is that trade openness drives growth. African countries have experienced low performances because of colonization. For instance, Ghana inherited industrial sector was underdeveloped mainly trade. The theoretical basis for this adoption is that trade openness is expected to enhance trade, which will, in turn, stimulate investment, thereby promoting the growth of the economy. These benefits of trade openness have stirred many developing countries in the late 1970s to adopt Trade policy and agricultural sector reforms have been at the centre of policy debate in many developing countries for the past years, with the aim of fostering growth (Vaughan et al., 2007). The effect of trade liberalisation and agricultural sector growth on environmental air quality is
