The Economics of Regional Trading Arrangements

Deals with the international economic system established in the 1860s and its operation until 1929. Section 1 analyses why the most‐favoured nation (MFN) principle emerged. Unconditional MFN treatment came to dominate intra‐European trade by the 1870s, although the USA maintained conditional MFN treatment. Section 2 analyses the growing protectionism between the 1870s and 1914, which undermined the system of non‐discriminatory trade relationships. Section 3 addresses attempts during the 1920s to re‐establish the pre‐1914 system. Section 4 examines the trading relationships between imperial powers and their colonies. Section 5 draws conclusions about the period.

Keywords:   colonies, Europe, most‐favoured nation, protectionism, trade, USA
