Are All Trade Protection Policies Created Equal?: Empirical Evidence for Nonequivalent Market Power Effects of Tariffs and Quotas
Bruce A. Blonigen (au)
Over the past 50 years, the steel industry has been protected by a wide variety of trade policies, both tariff- and quota-based. The authors exploit this extensive heterogeneity in trade protection to examine the well-established theoretical literature predicting nonequivalent effects of tariffs and quotas on domestic firms' market power. Using plant-level Census Bureau data for steel plants from 1967-2002, they find evidence for significant market power effects for binding quota-based protection, but not tariff-based protection, particularly with respect to integrated and minimill steel producers. The results of this study are robust to calculation with two standard measures of market power and controlling for potential endogeneity of trade policies. Tables. This is a print on demand report.
