Abstract: We define a distance function appropriate to the quantitative evaluation of trade reform, the coefficient of trade utilization. It is the natural measure for quota reform, and has theoretical and practical advantages over the standard tariff equivalent/consumer surplus method. We illustrate its properties by stating observable and very general measures of the welfare effects of trade reform.
