Abstract

Viele WTO-Mitglieder vertiefen und erweitern regionale Integrationsgemeinschaften - trotz bereits allgemein niedriger Meistbegünstigungszollsätze. Dieser Beitrag gibt einen Überblick über die möglichen wohlfahrtssteigernden Effekte einer Handelsliberalisierung zwischen der Europäischen Union (EU) und der Nordamerikanischen Freihandelszone (NAFTA). Den aus der Theorie zu erwartenden Auswirkungen werden quantitative (auf einem Berechenbaren Allgemeinen Gleichgewichtsmodell basierende) Abschätzungen der Effekte einer nordatlantischen Handelsliberalisierung gegenübergestellt. Die Simulationsergebnisse des Berechenbaren Allgemeinen Gleichgewichtsmodells weisen auf eher unbedeutende Größenordnungen der Effekte der nordatlantischen Handelsliberalisierung hin. Der Beitrag diskutiert dieses Resultat und leitet Implikationen für die Handelspolitik der EU und NAFTA ab.
