Abstract (Swedish)
This thesis is conducted in order to answer the question of whether the US trades more with Spanish-speaking countries after the implementation of NAFTA. The choice of topic is motivated by the fact that there seems to be a gap in similar studies on this specific area. The hypothesis is tested with a gravity model and an OLS regression. The panel data consists of 78 middle income countries exports to the US in the years between 1991 and 2005. The explanatory variables includes a set of binary ones created by the author. The results show that no support could be found for the hypothesis after running the regression.
