Graphing Comparative Desert

Show Summary Details


This chapter studies graphing comparative desert. It shows that comparative desert is fully satisfied when the offense against noncomparative desert—if there is any—is the same for all relevant individuals. It stresses the importance of the presence or absence of relative advantage to comparative desert, and then lists two problems that need to be addressed before relative advantage can be fully accepted as an approach. The latter half of the chapter demonstrates how the X gap view might best be treated, discusses the motion along the Y axis, and examines the Y gap view.

Keywords: comparative desert; graphing; noncomparative desert; relative advantage; X gap view; motion; Y axis; Y gap view
