 Here are some hypothetical numbers used to illustrate the ideas of  trade-offs, specialization, and comparative advantage.  Assume Sri  Lanka, using all her resources efficiently, can produce either 1,000  bags of rice OR 3,000 bags of tea.  Let’s also assume that, using all  her resources efficiently, Kenya can produce either 1,000 bags of rice  OR 1,000 bags of tea.  Further, assume that the countries have similar  resource endowments and that, initially, they are not trading with each  other.  Therefore, each of the countries has to produce both rice and  tea for its citizens.  Suppose that, in the no-trade situation, Sri  Lanka was consuming 400 bags of rice and 1,800 bags of tea, and in the  no-trade situation, Kenya was consuming 500 bags of rice and 500 bags of  tea.

Now, let’s play a fun game called the “Trading Game” to  figure out whether there is any benefit (in terms of increased  consumption possibilities) for these two countries if they trade with  each other.  You are given the following information to start the  “Trading Game”.  The trading price is set at one bag of rice for two  bags of tea, and Kenya wishes to keep at least 550 bags of rice after  trade.
