MERCOSUR’s Labyrinth and World Regionalism
Regional trade agreements are more likely to produce negative effects on nonmembers the larger and the more protected they are. Because MERCOSUR countries are efficient producers of the most protected products in the world –agricultural and agro-industrial products-, these countries suffer particularly from other countries regional agreements. Finally, these costs are likely to increase with the number of regional agreements in which they are not members. The arguments and estimates presented in this paper support these assertions.
