Public Procurement, Market Integration, and Income Inequalities
Review of International Economics, 2001, vol. 9, issue 1, 29-41
Aggregate demand externalities are the source of the cumulative processes of the new economic geography. In this paper these externalities drive the endogenous emergence of the pattern of international specialization in integrating economies. A distinguishing feature of this work is that it considers two aspects of market integration simultaneously: reduction of trade costs, and liberalization of the public procurement market. The first dimension has been widely studied. Adding the second dimension, which is on the policy agenda of the WTO and the EU, yields insights concerning the pattern of international specialization, income inequalities, and welfare.
