  • Card 10 / 16:
    Explain how trade barriers raise wages in protected industries by reducing average wages economy-wide.

    Trade based on comparative advantage raises the average wage rate economy-wide, though it can reduce the incomes of import-substituting industries. By moving away from a country’s comparative advantage, trade barriers do the opposite: they give workers in protected industries an advantage, while reducing the average wage economy-wide.
