When a country’s terms of trade worsen, it indicates that the country must export a greater number of units in order to purchase the same given number of imports. The Prebisch-Singer hypothesis states that a number of emerging markets, or developing countries, have experienced this, based on a generalized decline in the price of commodities, relative to the price of goods that are manufactured. In the past two decades, however, a rise in globalization has reduced the price of manufactured goods, thus the advantage that industrialized countries have over developing countries is growing less significant.
