Paradoxically, the enduring competitive advantages in a global economy lie increasingly in local things—knowledge, relationships, and motivation that distant rivals cannot match. Now that companies can source capital, goods, information, and technology from around the world, often with the click of a mouse, much of the conventional wisdom about how companies and nations compete needs to be overhauled. In theory, more open global markets and faster transportation and communication should diminish the role of location in competition. After all, anything that can be efficiently sourced from a distance through global markets and corporate networks is available to any company and therefore is essentially nullified as a source of competitive advantage. But if location matters less, why, then, is it true that the odds of finding a world-class mutual-fund company in Boston are much higher than in most any other place?

Competition and the Transformation of Economics (Routledge, ), those It appears to be generally held that the so-called theory of 'perfect competition'.
Competition arises whenever two or more parties strive for a common goal which cannot be shared: where one's gain is the other's loss an example of which is a zero-sum game.

It studies how individuals, businesses, governments, and nations make choices about how to allocate resources. The building blocks of economics are the studies of labor and trade. Since there are many possible applications of human labor and many different ways to acquire resources, it is the task of economics to determine which methods yield the best results. Economics can generally be broken down into macroeconomics , which concentrates on the behavior of the economy as a whole, and microeconomics , which focuses on individual people and businesses.
