When there are no differences among countries in the basic capabilities at producing goods, other bases for trade among them may still exist. First, patterns of demand may 41 among nations. For example, most consumers in 42 country may consider dog meat a delicacy, 43 in another country the consumption of dog meat is disgusting. In this case the second country may sell its dog meat to the first country. Trade will be 44 not on differences in the production capabilities of the two countries 45 on different consumption preferences.
Second, trade may occur out of economies of scale, 46 , the cost advantages of large-scale production. For example, Country A and Country B may have the same capability in producing cars and computers, but the cost for the production of both commodities will 47 if
the goods are produced on a larger scale. 48 countries may find it advantageous if each
49 to specialize completely in the production of one commodity and import the other.
50 , trade takes place because of innovation or style. Even though Country A produces enough cars at reasonable costs to meet its own 51 and even to export some, it may
52 import cars from other countries for innovation or variety of style.
To 53 , the theory of international specialization seeks to answer the 54 which countries will produce what goods, with what trade patterns among them. Differences in production conditions, the element highlighted by the theory of comparative advantage, provide the most important part of the answer. But a complete answer must also 55 into account other factors such as patterns of demand, economies of scale and innovation or style.

The proposal aims to encourage people to be healthy.
If this new idea in America becomes a law, people who are overweight could suffer financially too.
The US State of Arizona wants to charge overweight citizens $50 annually if they fail to follow their doctors’ advice. People with children or who are overweight because they suffer from a medical condition would be spared from the punishment.
If the idea is approved by the Congress, smokers and diabetics who fail to stick to a healthy lifestyle will also have to pay.
Medicaid, the organisation which provides healthcare to the poor in the USA, costs the government $339 billion a year. Monica Coury, assistant director at Arizona’s Medicaid programme, said that this proposal would ask people to give something back.
She said that Arizona would take a carrot and stick (胡萝卜加大棒) approach to the problem. As well as punishing people who go against their doctors’ wishes, incentives would be offered for following advice, possibly a keep-fit video.
Arizona’s senator Kyrsten Sinema has not backed the plans, saying that there isn’t a system to decide whether someone is or isn’t following medical advice. Other critics claim that people don’t need the government to look after them; if they want to be fat and smoke, the ‘nanny state’ shouldn’t try to stop them.
Wes Benedict of the Libertarian Party said, “If you want to save the state money … cut Medicaid across the board, but don’t single out overweight people and smokers.”
56. According to the proposal, what will happen to those overweight citizens in Arizona if they fail to follow the doctors’ advice?

A. Overweight people with children won’t be fined.
B. The proposal is expected to be passed by the President.
C. Some people suffering a medical condition also become overweight.
D. Medical care for the poor is a heavy burden on the government.
58. The word “incentives” in Paragraph 6 probably means ______.
A. returns B. profits
C. gifts D. awards
59. The reason why Kyrsten Sinema doesn’t support the proposal is ______.
A. people can take good care of themselves
B. every citizen is free to choose their life style
C. no system can tell whether people follow their doctors’ advice
D. it’s the government’s duty to offer medical services
60. What attitude does Wes Benedict hold toward this idea?

I was born in the year 1632, in the city of York, of a good family, though not of that country, my father being a foreigner of Bremen, who settled first at Hull. He got a good estate by merchandise, and leaving off his trade, lived afterwards at York, from whence he had married my mother, whose relations were named Robinson, a very good family in that country, and from whom I was called Robinson Kreutznaer; but, by the usual corruption of words in England, we are now called-nay we call ourselves and write our name-Crusoe; and so my companions always called me.
I had two elder brothers, one of whom was lieutenant-colonel to an English regiment of foot in Flanders, formerly commanded by the famous Colonel Lockhart, and was killed at the battle near Dunkirk against the Spaniards. What became of my second brother I never knew, any more than my father or mother knew what became of me.
Being the third son of the family and not bred to any trade, my head began to be filled very early with rambling thoughts. My father, who was very ancient, had given me a competent share of learning, as far as house-education and a country free school generally go, and designed me for the law; but I would be satisfied with nothing but going to sea; and my inclination to this led me so strongly against the will, nay, the commands of my father, and against all the entreaties(恳求) and persuasions of my mother and other friends, that there seemed to be something fatal in that propensity(倾向) of nature, tending directly to the life of misery which was to befall me.
