supply side constraint

Definition

Economics

  • This typically refers to any of a list of reasons why a developing country may find it hard to exploit its comparative advantage if there is trade liberalization. The list includes inadequate infrastructure, lowproductivity, and lack of information about markets. Some reflect legitimate needs for trade facilitation, but others are just excuses for protectionism.
