A General Equilibrium Analysis of US Foreign Trade Policy
Using applied general equilibrium methods to analyze recent debates about the conductof U.S. foreign trade policy, de Melo and Tarr show that in terms of costs to the economy and toconsumers, nontariff barriers in textiles, automobiles, and steel have more than reversed thebenefits of cumulative tariff liberalization achieved in successive postwar GATT rounds.The authors'model is the first large-scale computer simulation of the effects of changes in U.S. import quotas.It begins with perfect competition, proceeds to imperfect factor markets, and then introducesincreasing returns to scale and imperfect product markets. The basic model and its variants arecarefully explained to show how valuable and sensible a tool the model is for analyzing trade policyand to facilitate understanding of the construction of a general equilibrium model. Tables andfigures are used extensively to illustrate the principles involved.A detailed introduction takes uptrade policy issues, argues for the superiority of a general equilibrium approach over the moretraditional partial equilibrium approach, and surveys previous studies of the cost of protection.The chapters that follow describe the basic general equilibrium model and its extentions andapplication to specific policies and industries. The authors summarize their results by explainingthe costs per job protected by quotas, the estimated costs of all quantitative restrictions, and thecomputation of tariffs with a welfare cost equivalent to that of quotas.Jaime de Melo is Professorat the University of Geneva and Senior Economist at the World Bank. David Tarr is a Senior Economistat The World Bank.
