Abstract

This paper examines the effects on factor prices and welfare of partial trade liberalisation. The model is general equilibrium with two countries, two factors, and three sectors -- perfectly competitive, imperfectly competitive and trading resources. As trade is liberalised changes in factor prices and thus welfare may be non-monotonic even if the countries are identical. Differences across countries introduce Stolper-Samuelson considerations and affect the relative incentives for trade liberalisation across countries and factors.
