Calculate the intra-industry trade index for rice (HS 1006) and motor cars (HS 8703) in 2010 for Canada and Japan and the Entire World. To obtain the export and import values, access the U.S. Trade Stats Express Web site ( http://tse.export.gov/ ), click on “National Trade Data” then “Global Patterns of U.S. Merchandise Trade.” Under the “Product” section, change the item to rice or cars. Which product did you expect to have a higher index of intra-industry trade? Did you expect this to be different across countries? Explain your expectations for both?

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
