Rules of origin (ROOs) in US free-trade agreements (FTAs) provide particularized benefits to industries like textiles and autos. In so doing, they have helped win Congressional approval of controversial pacts like NAFTA (1993) and CAFTA (2005). ROOs are a form of hidden protection, reducing overall welfare, but they help US officials build winning coalitions for specific FTAs in the absence of a broad societal consensus in favor of trade liberalization.
