dynamic gains from trade

Definition

Economics

  • The hoped-for benefits from trade that accrue over time, in addition to the conventional static gains from trade of trade theory. Sources of these gains are not well understood or documented, although there exists a variety of possible theoretical reasons for them and some empirical evidence that countries have benefited more than the static gains alone would suggest.
