Part of the research I have undertaken in effort to write my term paper has highlighted the trade deficit between United States and China. People argue that trade subsidies in the auto industry coupled with alleged price fixing in China grants the nation an artificial comparative advantage. A Reuters article notes that China is poised to buy 600,000 T of corn. While this is clearly not substantial enough to close the trade deficit, it will lessen the gap a little bit. The important take away is that it shows that Chinese farmers want agricultural import curbs eased – signaling that, at least in the agricultural industry, natives are pushing to trade on a level where only natural comparative advantages exist.
