Ha sido publicado el último número de la revista Economía: Volume 44 Issue 88 (2021)

This issue contains a Special Section on “Preferential Trade Agreements, Trade and Multilateral Liberalization”, which was edited by Patricia Tovar (Pontifical Catholic University of Peru). The number of preferential trade agreements (PTAs) has skyrocketed in the last decades, with more than 500 PTAs already notified to the World Trade Organization. The explosive increase in the quantity of trade agreements led to important contributions on their effects on trade, welfare, and worldwide protection. The Special Section contains three studies and seeks to build on those contributions by focusing on the impacts of trade agreements on trade and the labor market, and on the interaction between preferential trade agreements and multilateral trade agreements and policies.

Also, this section includes an interesting paper on the Quantile Regressions Methodology, written by Javier Alejo (University of the Republic Uruguay), Federico Favata (National University of San Martin), Gabriel Montes-Rojas (University of Buenos Aires, CONICET and University of San Andres), and Martín Trombetta (CONICET and National University of General Sarmiento). The authors illustrate these techniques using age returns and gender gap in Argentina for 2019 and 2020.
