We show that the nature and extent of trade is significantly affected by the pricing policy that firms are allowed to employ. A switch from discriminatory to non-discriminatory pricing (e.g., strict antidumping laws) leads to a switch from two-way trade to one-way trade. It is far from true that consumers will necessarily be favoured by such a policy switch. The distribution of gains is also significantly affected by relative country size.
