IMPORTS: Goods and services produced by the foreign sector and purchased by the domestic economy. In other words, imports are goods purchased from other countries. The United States, for example, buys a lot of the stuff produced within the boundaries of other countries, including bananas, coffee, cars, chocolate, computers, and, well, a lot of other products. Imports, together with exports, are the essence of foreign trade--goods and services that are traded among the citizens of different nations. Imports and exports are frequently combined into a single term, net exports (exports minus imports).

INTERNATIONAL MARKET

A graphical model used to analyze the trade between two nations based on the domestic markets for a particular good in each nation. The international market combines the excess demand (or import demand) from one country with the excess supply (or export supply) from another to illustrate how two nations undertake mutually beneficial trade. The international market model also can be used to analyze the impact of tariffs, import quotas, and export subsidies.
