Are Free Trade Agreements Contagious?

Richard Baldwin () and Dany Jaimovich

No 16084, NBER Working Papers from National Bureau of Economic Research, Inc

Abstract: This paper presents a new model of the domino effect which is used to generate an empirical index of how "contagious" FTAs are with respect to third nations. We test our contagion hypothesis together with alternative specifications of interdependence and other political, economical and geographical determinants of FTA formation. Our main finding is that contagion is present in our data and is robust to various econometric specifications and samples.
