Abstract
2 IDPM-UA Discussion Paper 2005-04 Abstract This paper aims at analyzing the linkages between international trade openness and poverty in Argentina. Under a specific-factors setting, a two-step procedure is presented. In the first stage the change in prices of goods and factors in both tradable and non-tradable sectors, after a trade liberalisation episode, is considered. In a second step, these variations are applied to assess the changes in poverty and households welfare. A micro-simulation approach, using households survey data, is applied in this last stage. The results of the research are important since they provide an assessment of the impact trade policies have on poverty.
