Abstract

La nueva teoría del comercio internacional deja de lado las diferencias entre los países en cuanto a recursos y se enfoca en las decisiones de los empresarios para presentar una visión alternativa de las implicaciones de la firma del Tratado de libre Comercio. La nueva teoría pone énfasis en la heterogeneidad de las empresas, en la relevancia de la productividad y en los diversos costos fijos en que incurren las empresas para producir para el mercado domestico o para mercados internacionales. Los nuevos modelos del comercio internacional predicen que las empresas grandes son las que más se benefician de una liberación del comercio como la planteada en el TLC. En contraposición a la gran empresa, la pequeña empresa sufre los embates de la competencia externa y frecuentemente tiene que reducir aún más su tamaño o cerrar. El cierre de pequeñas empresas puede traer altos costos sociales en términos de empleo, pérdida de diversidad en la economía y debilitamiento de la base para la generación de nuevas tecnologías y renovación del aparato productivo. Se recomienda buscar un equilibrio entre el fomento a las exportaciones y la protección a la pequeña empresa. Una sugerencia que se presenta en particular es buscar la reducción de los costos de acceso a los mercados internacionales por las pequeñas empresas.
