Several chapters explore the economic effects of regional arrangements on patterns of trade, either on price differentials or via the gravity model on bilateral trade flows. In addition, this book examines the theoretical foundation of the gravity model. The gravity model is supported as a useful method for empirical analysis, first by Deardorff's masterly demonstration of its theoretical underpinnings in virtually all trade models, then by flexible and subtle applications with adequate robustness checks. The papers collectively provide the first concentrated generalization and data-centered execution of Krugman's influential early-1990s bilateralism model.
