A second consideration pertains to the distribution of the gains from trade among countries involved in the globalized production of a product. (2012). Sometimes, TOT may turn adverse against poor LDCs. For countries with high inward MP flows, the gains from trade calculatedwith ourmodel canbemuchhigher thanthegains calculated in trade-only models.8 For example, the gains from trade implied by our model for New Zealand are between 8 and 10 percent, whereas trade-only models imply gains of around 4 percent.

This classic topic in the international trade literature has recently received renewed interest following the findings of Arkolakis et al. This paper revisits the relationship between international trade and economic growth. 4 Gains from Trade Having developed the theoretical structure, we are now in a position to answer the question we had posed in the beginning: Is trade beneficial; are there gains from trade? Therefore, the heterogeneous rm model embodies an extra channel through which gains from trade can potentially arise from the production side.

Abstract We examine how firm heterogeneity influences the welfare gains from trade through endogenous firm selection. The theory of competitive advantage is one of the most widely accepted economic principles among economists. gains from specializa tion and trade. How large are the welfare gains from international trade? Recent trade theory describes how trade liberalization increases compe­ tition and favors the growth of high-productivity firms.
