REIS, Magnus dos; SANTAROSSA, Eduardo Trapp; AZEVEDO, André Filipe Zago de  and  PORTO JUNIOR, Sabino da Silva. A OMC Continua Promovendo o Comércio de Forma Desigual: Novas Evidências a Partir dos Anos 1990. Rev. Bras. Econ. [online]. 2015, vol.69, n.3, pp.389-404. ISSN 0034-7140.

The paper provides evidences that the WTO continues to have a profound impact on its member’s trade, in the period 1990–2009, as originally prompted by Subramanian & Wei (2007). Using a gravity model, based on panel data and the Poisson Pseudo Maximum Likelihood estimator, the paper compares the amount of multilateral trade liberalization in developed and developing countries. The results suggest that developing countries, during the period examined, benefited most from the increase in world trade promoted by WTO, inverting the situation identified by Subramanian & Wei (2007) in the period 1950–2000.
