Abstract:

The Brander-Taylor small, open-economy model of trade in a renewable resource and other goods is modified to allow for diminishing returns in the other goods sector. It is shown that opening up for trade may result in steady-state gains from trade, even when there is open access to the resource and the country does not specialize fully in resource extraction. It is also shown that transition to optimal management, with price-taking behaviour, may result in a welfare loss.

Resources renouvelables et gains en provenance du commerce international. L'auteur modifie le modèle Brander-Taylor de commerce international d'une ressource renouvelable et d'autres biens dans le cas d'une petite économie ouverte afin de tenir compte des rendements décroissants dans le secteur des autres biens. On montre que I'ouverture au commerce international peut entraîner des gains en provenance de l'échange international en régime permanent, et ce même quand l'accès à la ressource est ouvert et que le pays ne se spécialise pas dans l'extraction de la ressource. On montre que dans la période de transition vers un management optimal, quand il y a ajustement aux prix de marché, il peut y avoir perte de bien-être.
