The question of gains may be analyzed from the perspective of the nation, as well as at sectoral levels and in terms of factor returns. Recent trade theory describes how trade liberalization increases compe­ tition and favors the growth of high-productivity firms. Here we show how to calculate the surplus mathematically, and prove that the compet-itive equilibrium allocation maximizes the gains from trade. gains from specializa tion and trade. 4) for a review of love-of-variety gains ffrom trade.rom trade.

The discrepancy in Switzerland’s gains from trade is driven by the underestimation of Swiss sectors’ exposure to foreign markets by the WIOT. Therefore, the heterogeneous rm model embodies an extra channel through which gains from trade can potentially arise from the production side.
