Outlines for an information theoretic interpretation of international trade is given in this paper. The interpretation is based on the analogy between the symbols sent and received in a communication system and the commodities exported and imported in international trade. This interpretation gives some entropy-measures for international trade. The usefulness of these measures is discussed by way of a simple example.
