Export enhancing tariff protection with strategic precommitment
|Title:||Export enhancing tariff protection with strategic precommitment||Authors:||Leahy, Dermot||Permanent link:||http://hdl.handle.net/10197/1950||Date:||Mar-1994||Abstract:||The import protection as export promotion thesis is examined from a positive and normative perspective in a series of two-stage games in which firms choose R&D and capacity in the first stage and quantity or price in the second. It is shown (i) that a tariff affects exports in two ways; firstly, with increasing marginal cost it crowds out exports; secondly by increasing R&D and/or capacity it raises exports indirectly, (ii) when firms choose R&D and quantities a small tariff will raise welfare. This result can be reversed under Bertrand competition.||Funding Details:||Not applicable||Type of material:||Working Paper||Publisher:||University College Dublin.
