The Comparative Advantage of Upland Cotton Production in Texas
Keywords:comparative advantage, cotton
AbstractThis paper uses Efficiency Advantage Index (EAI), Scale Advantage Index (SAI), and Aggregate Advantage Index (AAI) to explore the relative yield, scale and overall advantage of upland cotton production by comparing different states of the U.S. and different districts of Texas. The study reveals that the comparative advantage in main upland cotton varies significantly across the U.S. and Texas.
