El libre comercio entre países desiguales


  • Richard G. Lipsey

    (Simon Fraser University)


This paper discusses some aspects of trade among unequal countries, where this inequality can be in terms of economic development or sheer size. It is argued in particular that small countries such as Canada and Mexico can benefit from establishing free trade agreements with larger countries. The author also recommends a trilateral agreement among Canada, Mexico and the United States, instead of bilateral accords between the latter and each of the other two countries.
