What conclusions would a Realist draw from a state entering into a customs union with neighboring states? What conclusions would a Liberal-Internationalist Draw? What would both groups say about the future development of the agreement?
A Realist would believe that the states are each seeking to establish an economic advantage by expanding markets for their trade goods. A Realist would believe that the union would be maintained so long as it was to the advantage of the members. A Liberal-Internationalist would believe that the states have established this union in an effort to facilitate trade and economic growth as well as forging stronger commercial ties. A Liberal-Internationalist would believe that the union would most likely expand beyond a customs union as growing commercial bonds bring the economies of the nations together and provide benefits for all parties.
