Open Activity

This interactive activity illustrates the concept of comparative advantage in three hypothetical situations: first analyzing two workers in a pizza shop, then in an activity involving the production of phones and microwaves in two countries and finally, the production of wheat and cheese in the U.S. and France. This interactive is intended for use with Lesson 26, Comparative Advantage, from High School Economics, 3rd Edition, available in the CEE Store.
