Then, we introduce a supra-national agency, which is in charge of the environmental policies and maximizes total welfare, while trade policies remain under the jurisdiction of national regulators. Obviously, centralization of emission levels improves total welfare since, now, the social damage cost of pollution is perfectly internalized. However, under a common market, the choice of environmental policies pushes further up the reallocation effect. In the end, even though total welfare is increased, the large country loses more and the small one gains more when environmental policies are centralized.

The surprising element is that the South is also induced to reduce pollution. Under complete specialization, if either country increases the release of the natural resource, the supply of its exportable good would go up, leading to deterioration in its terms-of-trade. This effect, by itself, is a source of first-order welfare loss. This implies that, on account of this effect alone, free trade induces both North and South to reduce the release of the polluting resource and hence improve their terms-of-trade and welfare.
