    Basically yes. (Your number would be -10, not -2).

    Although it's not always that perfectly simple. If you stop trading (close borders or go Mercantilism), you lose 10 commerce and the other civs lose 20 commerce in trade routes to you. But some of that will be replaced with domestic trade routes to each civ's own cities, or perhaps even more foreign routes if more cities exist belonging to other civs. It's not something that can be figured simply with a single plus-or-minus number, but you can get a general idea.
