This survey does not pretend to provide a comprehensive coverage of the gains from trade theory. For more, readers are referred to the handbooks by Grossman and Rogoff (1995) and Harrigan and Choi (2003) and the textbook by Feenstra (2016). Melitz (2003) provides the theory behind this point, and many econometricians have since provided strong empirical support for that theory. The argument for allowing such monopolies is that they could provide greater technical efficiency via their larger scale.
The extent to which they contribute to the integration of the world’s food markets depends heavily, though, on the willingness of partners to liberalize agricultural trade alongside that for other goods and services. To date, there has been a tendency to open markets for food less than for other products in regional agreements, just as in multilateral ones. Simulations of the welfare gains to developing countries from a prospective large Asian FTA suggest they would double if agriculture is also freed, and the projected gains to the world as a whole would be four times greater if agriculture is not excluded.
This again illustrates the point that trade restrictions are so high for food compared with other products that their removal would dominate the gains from freeing trade. POLICY IMPLICATIONS AND PROSPECTS FOR BOOSTING GLOBAL FOOD SECURITY Chapter 12 reiterates that open markets maximize the benefit that international trade can offer to boost global food security and ensure the world’s agricultural resources are used sustainably. The decline in costs of trading internationally reinforces that message, as does climate change.
