"Межрегиональная и международная торговля. Олин: 70 лет спустя" (открытый семинар ЛИА по экономической теории)
Докладчик: Ж. Тисс (профессор, Католический университет Левена, Бельгия)
We study the impact of falling trade costs and falling national transport costs on the economic geography of countries involved in an integration process. Each country is formed by two regions between which labor is mobile, whereas there is no international factor mobility. Commodities can be traded both nationally and internationally at positive but different costs.
In our setting, a decrease in trade costs and/or in national transport costs has a direct impact on prices and wages in both countries. This allows us to study how the variations of these parameters affect the terms of trade, the levels of welfare as well as to account for their impact on the economic geography of each country in a way that significantly differs from what has been accomplished so far.
