The WTO has had trouble with both roles: The big boys (U.S. and E.U.) cant agree. The little guys feel cheated The Regional Approach The regional approach to trade liberalization requires some degree of economic integration. Economic integration is the process of abolishing discrimination among economic units belonging to different states by forming trade blocs. Types of Economic Blocs A Free Trade Area Tariffs among the participating countries are

abolished, but each country retains its own tariffs against nonmembers. NAFTA A Customs Union Tariffs among the participating countries are abolished, and tariffs against nonmembers will be equalized. Types of Economic Blocs A Common Market Tariffs among the participating countries are abolished, a common set of external restrictions is adopted, and restrictions on factor movements are abolished.

An Economic Union Combines the suppression of restrictions on commodity and factor movements with some degree of harmonization of national economic policies. The European Union (EU) Types of Economic Blocs Total Economic Integration Requires not only the unification of monetary, fiscal, social, and countercyclical policies but also the establishment of a supra-national authority whose decisions are binding for the member states.
