Economic Integration Agreements And The Margins Of International Trade

Similarly, the model variables of Mérquez-Ramos and Martinez-Gomez (2014) do not reflect the different concessions in terms of commercial preferences. It may be interesting to look at other measures of heterogeneity of trade agreements, for example. B as in Kohl et al. (2013), as we do in this research. Bensassi, S., Mérquez-Ramos, L., Marténez-Zarzoso, I. (2012). Economic integration and the two trade margins: the impact of the Barcelona process on exports from North African countries. Journal of African Economies, 21 (2), 228-265. Each table presents the results for three different LHS variables: bilateral trade, EM or IM.

In addition, we have vertically arranged the list of the existing EIS, moving from flat to deeper. Intense trading margins react earlier than large margins, in line with the theory.

One of the main political sources of trade cost change is the creation of an Economic Integration Agreement (EIA), which could adversely affect the well-being of an importing country. This document: (i) provides the first evidence from both gravitational equations of extended margins (goods) affected by the EIS, which use a panel dataset containing a large number of country pairs, product categories and EIS from 1962 to 2000; (ii) provides the first evidence of the different (partial) effects of different EIAs on these intense and extensive trade ranges; and (iii) finds a new « timing » differentiated from the (partial) effects of the two high-margin margins, which appear earlier in the form of extensive margin effects, in line with the most recent theoretical forecasts.
