Absolute Advantage is an analytical descriptive category of a entity (country, business, or individual) who is more efficient than its trading partners at all production. It is used as a device to describe why certain countries, despite their wealth and advantages, may trade with disadvantaged countries by way of the law of comparative advantage.
