Abstract: This paper examines the decision to create barriers to arbitrage for a firm selling on two national markets. Sunk costs of market segmentation imply that the option to segment markets is more valuable the greater the variability of purchasing power between markets. One result is that a monetary union may lead to market integration when a fixed exchange rate did not. Extensions examine hysterisis, transport costs and general equilibrium modeling.
