Abstract

Application of some new results in industrial organisation to trade theory have provided a better explanation of some stylized facts by being able to recognise features such as increasing returns to scale and non-competitive market structure. Another kind of such applications have generated results favoring an active role for government intervention under certain situations. A third line of research tends to find support for the view that the optimality propositions of the neoclassical theory associated with free trade are invalid for developing countries. The purpose of this paper is to examine the new theory in relation to policies of trade liberalisation that many developing countries have recently initiated. It will be argued that the case for liberalisation is by no means weakened by the new theory.
