Os Ganhos do Comércio Livre

Johan Norberg chama a atenção para um um paper de Kym Anderson que explicita os ganhos potenciais com a abolição de subsídios e medidas protecionistas e com os ganhos de eficiência que daí se podem advir.

- If rich countries abolished their agricultural protectionism, the world economy could gain $122 billion per year, simply by more specialisation and efficiency.

  • If poor countries abolished their own tariffs, their economies could gain $65 billion per year.

  • If we halved the legal limits for subsidies and tariffs, the global economy could gain something between $188 billion and $1 trillion per year.

  • But there are not merely static efficiency gains. Cutting trade barriers by half could also raise economic growth by a third in developing countries and one-sixth in richer countries.

  • Over 50 years, this extra growth plus the static efficiency gains from trade, adds more than $23 trillion to the world economy. Of this total, poor countries would reap $11.5 trillion.
