Abstract
Economic theory has produced many dynamic models of economic growth and development, some of which take into account the export-import sector and balance of payments problem so vital to underdeveloped countries. These models are either product-market oriented, money-market oriented, or some combination of both. Those that are product-market oriented generally take the import sector as exogenously determined or changing at some specific, usually constant, rate and

then analyze the export sector with respect to it; suggesting that in

accordance with the theory of comparative advantage, an underdeveloped

country should expand its production of export good or goods in which it possesses a comparative advantage, as a means of improving its balance of payments position and moving towards sustained economic growth.
