German term or phrase: Wohlstandseffekt
Can anyone help me with a translation of "Wohlstandseffekt"? It appears throughout the document on international trade agreements, but the following is a pretty representative sentence using the term: "Bei den zu erwartenden Wohlstandseffekten durch ein FTAAP ist die geringe Anzahl an negativen Effekten auffällig." I have found "wealth effect" (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wealth_effect) and "welfare effect" in various forums, but "wealth effect" (or the wealth effect) is a pretty specific concept and seems too specific for the context, and "welfare effect" seems too vague. Any thoughts? Thanks!
