The Gains from Trade for a Monetary Economy Once Again

Theodore Palivos and Chong Yip

Canadian Journal of Economics, 1997, vol. 30, issue 1, 208-23

Abstract: The authors examine the effects of free trade on a small open economy within a dynamic generalized cash-in-advance model. They provide a complete characterization for the possibility of harmful trade and suggest alternative economic policies that can convert the loss associated with free trade into a gain. They authors also find, contrary to standard results, that there exists an optimal tariff for a small open economy, and they use calibration methods to assess its value.
