VISCONTI, Natalia Paiva do Nascimento  and  KUME, Honorio. The U.S. generalized system of preferences: an estimate of the impacts on brazilian exports. Rev. econ. contemp. [online]. 2010, vol.14, n.1, pp.7-25. ISSN 1980-5527.

The U.S. Generalized System of Preferences (GSP), a concession offered unilaterally, is one of the most important preferential tariff programs to Brazil, but recently has been causing some apprehension due to threats to exclude this country from the list of beneficiaries. This study has the objective to estimate, based on the partial computational equilibrium model, the loss of the brazilian exports to the usa if Brazil is excluded from the GSP. The results obtained imply a decrease of US$ 403 millions of exports, concentrated on a small number of sectors.

Keywords : Generalized System of Preferences (GSP); partial equilibrium model; brazilian exports.
