The law of comparative advantage refers to the notion that states that every nation, city or town has a production activity that incurs a lower opportunity cost than other nations, cities or towns. This law has a fundamental advantage to international trade. It also applies to different areas of specialization, for instance, division of labor. One can understand the law of comparative advantage by looking at several things that put one nation, city or town on top of the others. This paper looks at the comparative advantage of the Los Angeles city in the United States of America.
