Trade policy modelling typically focuses on effects of tariff changes on product markets. Yet in practice those are small relative to effects of changes in real incomes and real exchange rates as a consequence of a trade agreement. And the effects on bilateral trade are sensitive to follow-on bilateral FTAs, each of which generates winners and losers. The trade and welfare benefits of even cumulative FTAs are typically very small compared with those from global reform.
