European economic integration: Comparative advantages and free trade of the means of production

Michele Boglioni

Structural Change and Economic Dynamics, 2019, vol. 51, issue C, 491-504

Abstract: One of the most well-known theories of international trade suggests that when markets are left free to operate, countries should specialise according to their Comparative Advantages (CAs). However, the results provided by Boglioni and Zambelli (2017) suggest that CAs do not seem to have worked in Europe during the period 1995–2011.
