Comparative advantage predicts that countries will trade with other countries that are different (the source of the comparative cost differences) and that each country will export some products and import other, quite different products. While much international trade conforms to these patterns, a substantial amount does not. Most obviously, industrialized countries trade a lot with each other, and in much of their trade each is exporting and importing similar products.   Develop a detail paper analyzing Intra-Industry International Trade.
