Marshall-Lerner condition

The condition that sum of the elasticities of demand for exports and imports exceed one (in absolute value); that is, hX + hM > 1, where hX, hM are the demand elasticities for a country's exports and imports respectively, both defined to be positive for downward sloping demands. Under certain assumptions, this is the condition for a depreciation to improve the trade balance, for the exchange market to be stable, and for international barter exchange to be stable.
