Summary expansion
  • Has globalization gone far enough? This study will use the underlying data from Purchasing Power Parity Surveys to estimate the potential benefits from fully integrating goods markets among major OECD countries. These data are particularly useful because they are comprehensive and every effort has been made to ensure that they are comparable. Input-output tables will be used to eliminate distribution margins from final goods prices and thereby provide estimates of ex-factory prices. Price differentials will be taken as measures of barriers, and the welfare effects of eliminating these barriers will be estimated in a general equilibrium model. The study will also provide insights into the relative openness of individual OECD countries to the world economy, and the degree to which Europe has become a single market
  • How important are the remaining barriers to integration in international goods markets and how would eliminating them affect global and individual countries' welfare? This book studies these questions using the most comprehensive price data available. Bradford and Lawrence find that there is considerable market fragmentation among industrial countries -- that is, firms charging different prices for similar products in different national markets -- even among countries with low tariff barriers. The authors estimate that integration among the eight countries in their sample -- Australia, Canada, Germany, Italy, Japan, the Netherlands, the United Kingdom and the United States -- would raise global GDP by more than $500 billion, or about 2 percent. Remarkably, almost half the global gain in these eight countries could be reaped if Japan alone eliminated its international fragmentation
