Over the past half-century, the share of farm products in national exports has been declining not only for most groups of countries but also for the world as a whole. A persistent decline in comparative advantage in agriculture is evident only for Japan and upper middle-income countries. For the high-income group as a whole, and especially for Western Europe, their comparative advantage in farm products has risen rather than fallen. One reason for not observing the trends in national farm trade patterns that theory suggests for high-income and low-income countries is the antitrade bias in many nations’ policies that distorts domestic farm product prices relative to those of other tradables.

Initiatives that boost economic growth are therefore likely to be helpful in the fight against poverty, and trade liberalization is such an initiative. But cuts to trade barriers also alter relative product prices domestically and in international markets, which, in turn, affect factor prices. Hence, the net effect on poverty depends also on the way those price changes affect poor households’ expenditure and their earnings net of remittances. If the consumer and producer price changes (whether due to own-country reforms and/or those of other countries) are pro-poor, then they will tend to reinforce any positive growth effects of trade reform on the poor.
