He presented an example where the adoption of the Kemp-Wan CET, together with optimal behaviour by non-members, proves to be detrimental to the CU member countries. In short, Richardson's point was that allowing for retaliation destroys the nice features of the Kemp-Wan CET. However, and as we emphasized above, the Kemp-Wan CET was 3 The details of the argument will be presented below. Note, however, that Kemp and Wan (1976) were not the first to argue this. Kemp (1964), Vanek (1965) and Ohyama (1972) also discuss, what at that time was called, the tariff-compensating customs union.

Thus 0' denotes the origin for member 1, while c (labelled O2) becomes the origin for member 2. I4 Consumption points that are Pareto superior to C occur in the cigar shaped area labelled PCO. Pareto optimal points that are weakly preferred to C occur on the curve labelled PO. Any point on the interior of this curve, such as point Q, is strictly Pareto superior to point C while the endpoints P and 0 are weakly Pareto superior to C. The essence of the second theorem of welfare economics, as employed by Kemp and Wan, is that any such point can be supported as an equilibrium by the imposition of free internal trade and by an appropriate choice of the common external tariff l4 The term "optimality" is used here and below to mean optimality conditional upon the Kemp-Wan assumptions (that world prices are kept fixed and the rest of the world does not retaliate) and refers to customs union members.

For example, as illustrated in Figure 2, the balance of trade line passing through Falso passes through the Pareto optimal point R. This consumption point can therefore be supported by a common external tariff yielding a domestic price vector passing through R and tangent to both in- difference curves at R without any transfers. I5 Figure 2. Kemp-Wan Proposition - No Transfers Required In summary, it has therefore been established that any point on the conditionally Pareto optimal curve PO can be supported by internal free trade and by a suitable common external tariff and set of internal transfers.
