A General Equilibrium Analysis of the Gains from NAFTA for the Mexican Economy

  • Horacio E. Sobarzo
Part of the Advanced Studies in Theoretical and Applied Econometrics book series (ASTA, volume 31)


This chapter attempts to evaluate the effects that the free trade agreement (FTA) between Mexico, Canada, and the United States will have on the Mexican economy in the presence of scale economies and imperfect competition in the Mexican industry. The method of modeling economies of scale follows the lines of the Harris (1984) model for Canada and focuses in detail on the effects within the Mexican economy.
