Abstract
Economists along with policy makers are generally viewing trade agreements as a
"second best" process for trade expansion and economic growth on a global scale.
The current surge of preferential trade arrangements on a bilateral basis,
particularly in Asia, is somehow challenging such common view. The following
paper is based on updated rough facts and put forward that the standard economic
approach is a bit flawed. Obviously, the outcomes and prospects for Asian
countries seem much more problematic insofar as power asymmetry and
discrimination are embedded in these agreementsEconomists along with policy makers are generally viewing trade agreements as a
