ECOCB/535 Competency 3 – Assessment and Rubric
Course Title: The Digital Economy
Competency Assessment Title: International Trade Evaluations and World Economies Comparison Presentation
Total Number of Points: 100
Assignment Directions:
Congratulations, your consulting business continues to thrive. You have been tasked with developing a two-part presentation to generate important discussion
around international trade and world economies to help interns apply their understanding.
Create a presentation incorporating the following:
Part 1: International Trade
Review the Competency 3 Resources: Exchange Across International Borders.
Prepare a 12- to 16-slide (of the two-part presentation) with detailed speaker’s notes and visual elements, including graphs and tables.
Complete the following in your presentation:
Choose a pair of economies from the bulleted list below, (each pair has 1 highly successful country and 1 less successful country, except for NAFTA /EU):
•
•
•
•
•
NAFTA vs. European Union (world’s two largest economic entities)
China vs. India (world’s two most populous countries)
South Korea vs. North Korea (two polar economic opposites, one people)
Venezuela vs. Saudi Arabia (world’s two largest sources of oil reserves)
Nigeria vs. Democratic Republic of the Congo (functioning government and civil order vs. struggling government and violent clashes among factions; note:
the Republic of the Congo is not the same country as the Democratic Republic of the Congo)
Research the economies for your chosen pair of countries. Compare similarities and differences between your chosen countries/economies and explain how their
economic, political, and cultural development since 1992 has influenced their economic growth and trade competitiveness.
Use tables or graphs to support your analysis of the following economic statistics/indicators of your 2 chosen economies through the most recent year available
since 2009 (the trough of the last economic cycle):
•
•
•
•
GDP per capita growth over time
Inflation rate over time
Unemployment rate over time
Exports as a percentage of GDP over time

•
National government debt as a percentage of GDP
Whenever possible, plot the metric for both economies on the same chart.
Evaluate the reasons why the economic growth of the 2 economies/countries varied. Discuss how international trade influenced the strength of each economy.
Discuss the role of value chains and value-added production.
Analyze how the failure to use value-added trade measures distorts trade statistics.
Examine at least 2 industries that have provided each economy a comparative advantage in world trade.
Cite at least 2 academically credible sources.
Part 2: World Economies
Promoting international trade is not a zero-sum game. It is a win-win proposition; both parties gain from trade.
Consider the following.
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
Tariffs are paid by the citizens of the country imposing tariffs, not by the citizens of the country producing the products upon which the tariffs are levied.
The term “trade deficits” is a misnomer. Every country’s trade is always in balance.
Trade deficits do not mean the United States no longer produces anything to export. The United States is the world’s second largest manufacturer and the
world’s second largest exporter of manufactured goods.
Trade deficits reflect a strong economy. Trade deficits rise during economic expansions and fall during economic contractions. Unemployment falls as
trade deficits rise and rises as trade deficits fall.
Imports and exports are complements, not competitors. Both are necessary and both contribute to economic growth.
There is a strong correlation between the rise in world trade and:
o The rise in world GDP
o The dramatic fall in the world’s extreme poverty rate
o The rise in world life expectancy
Those 7 jobs cannot be brought back from overseas because they never left the United States.
Prepare a 6- to 8-slides to evaluate credible economists’ unbiased opinions on the benefits, costs, and results of current U.S. trade and tariff policies.
Include detailed speaker notes and visual elements, including graphs and tables.
Complete the following in your presentation.
•
•
•
Evaluate how U.S. trade policy changes in the last 2 years affect global trade activities by multinational corporations.
Discuss credible economists’ opinions on the long-term effects of trade and tariff policies changes in the last 2 years.
Explain the effect of recent changes to trade and tariff policies have had on your employer, you, or someone you know.
Cite at least 2 academically credible sources.
Compile the slides from Parts 1 and 2 into one presentation.
Submit your presentation.
