Abstract

In this paper we look at the welfare effects of trade reform in the many-consumers case. We show that Pareto-improving reforms with lump-sum taxation or with non-lump-sum taxation are possible in the small country case if sufficient conditions for welfare to rise in the single-consumer case are met.
