"More (or less) on necessarily welfare-enhancing free trade areas"
by Richardson, Martin and Niven Winchester


Abstract
This note considers the extension of the Kemp-Wan theorem on necessarily welfare-improving customs unions to free trade areas. It suggests that the value of this extension is undermined by its very rationale – the greater popularity of free trade areas over customs unions for ‘political’ reasons.

Keywords: Kemp-Wan, customs unions, free trade areas.

JEL Classification numbers: F13, F15
