File Name: difference between tariff and non tariff barriers writer.zip
Tariff , also called customs duty , tax levied upon goods as they cross national boundaries, usually by the government of the importing country. The words tariff , duty , and customs can be used interchangeably. Tariffs may be levied either to raise revenue or to protect domestic industries, but a tariff designed primarily to raise revenue also may exercise a strong protective influence, while a tariff levied primarily for protection may yield revenue.

Protectionism and industrialization: a critical assessment of the Latin American industrialization period. Protectionist policies were considered one of the pivotal features of the import industrialization process in Latin America. In this paper the effects of protectionist policies are assessed in terms of the principal macroeconomic variables, productive structure and external trade composition; also, ECLAC's perspective on the import substitution process is discussed. The main conclusions are that regional protectionist policies were spontaneous, and their effects were limited due to the generalized protection that took place and the government's commitment to price stability. Latin America underwent an import substitution industrialization that induced profound structural change in production and external sectors. An important policy objective of the Import Substitution Industrialization ISI, hereafter model was to protect domestic production sectors from external competition. Consequently, economic policy instruments such as quotas, tariffs, subsidies and special licenses were applied to imports and exports.
One of the most debated issues in international trade is protectionism. On one hand, nations believe a certain amount is necessary to protect domestic industries and jobs. On the other, protectionism may invite retaliation from trading partners, foster additional protectionism and result in blocks to free trade. Two commonly used protectionist tools are tariffs and quotas. A tariff is essentially a tax. It raises the price of an imported good, making it more expensive than similar domestic goods.
If one considers only legal trade formally recorded in yearly international trade flows of Bangladesh, then India comes up as the second largest source of imports coming into Bangladesh after China. The flow of smuggled goods from India into Bangladesh is also substantial, and there is a popular belief among the knowledgeable quarters that the flow of smuggled goods from India may not be far behind in value compared to the legal trade flow from India into Bangladesh. In Table 1, we present the official figures of the yearly flows of legal imports from India to Bangladesh and the yearly flows of exports from Bangladesh to India in recent years. From the figures presented in the table, we can say that Bangladesh's yearly legal import flow from India is more than ten times the legal export flow to India from Bangladesh on average. Knowledgeable quarters claim that the flows of smuggling of goods from India to Bangladesh carries almost the same type of imbalance compared to the value of smuggled goods from Bangladesh to India, though the actual values of those two flows cannot be accurately gauged for obvious reasons. This hugely lopsided trade balance favouring India creates a lot of hue and cry in the political circles of Bangladesh. But, it should be appreciated that Indian goods are preferred by the importers not as any particular favour to India, but because of cost and profit considerations, convenience and suitability.
Series Editor: impact of non-tariff measures with a focus on technical regulations. A minimalist theoretical the producer point of view, a major difference between measures falling into the technical regulations type, and II.D No. 24 Ralf Peters and David Vanzetti, User manual and handbook on Agricultural Trade.
This project aims to provide new evidence on non-tariff barriers to trade in the Russian, Chinese, Ukrainian and other markets, and examine their cost and impact on trade. Focusing on Norwegian seafood exports and food imports into Norway and Europe, the project aims to shed new light on the role of non-tariff barriers in trade NTBs , particularly focusing on SPS sanitary and phytosanitary regulations. With an increasing role for NTBs over time, the project aims to shed light on the nature and importance of NTBs, and whether they affect small and large traders differently. Following the recent literature on international trade with firm heterogeneity, we distinguish between trade effects via the extensive margin due to entry and exit of firms and the intensive margin because of changed sales volumes by firms already in the market. Some results indicate that NTBs particularly work through the extensive margin, by reducing market entry and thereby leading to market concentration.
I deleted this list since it seemed to me to be just a repeat of the material which is now in text. But I've copied it here as a checklist in case anything remains to be done. Another list moved out of the article space, that seems to repeat material in text.
The balance of trade , commercial balance , or net exports sometimes symbolized as NX , is the difference between the monetary value of a nation's exports and imports over a certain time period. The balance of trade measures a flow of exports and imports over a given period of time. The notion of the balance of trade does not mean that exports and imports are "in balance" with each other.

We evaluate the effect of the British General Tariff on the output, labour productivity and employment growth of British industries. We provide a new disaggregated data set that matches industry-level Census of Production data with industry-specific tariff rates to accurately isolate treatment and control groups and estimate the effect of the General Tariff using difference-in-difference regressions. In the two-group comparison, we identify a tariff effect that is large and statistically significant on output and productivity. These effects are observed over the periods — and —, suggesting both short-run and medium-term effects on output and productivity of UK industries protected by the General Tariff.
This article empirically investigates the impact of trade barriers on the world wine trade focusing on trade costs impeding exports, including transport, tariffs, technical barriers and sanitary and phytosanitary SPS standards. A gravity model is estimated using data from the main importing and exporting countries for the years — The Poison pseudo-maximum likelihood estimator accounts for heteroskedasticity and the presence of zero trade flows. Our results identify which regulations can adversely affect trade providing useful information to policy-makers involved in negotiations on trade frictions. While SPS measures do not seem to obstruct exports, technical barriers have a varying impact on trade. A decreasing trend for tariffs has largely been compensated by more stringent technical barriers.
