Abstract

Capital inflows with full repatriation give rise to welfare improvement possibilities in a small tariff-distorted economy when imperfect competition and increasing returns are allowed for in one sector of a two-sector model. This is in contrast to the Brecher-Diaz-Alejandro (1977) proposition that capital inflows with full repatriation are necessarily immiserizing for a small tariff-ridden economy. The authors find that welfare gains changes are greater the higher the expenditure share of the capital-intensive differentiated good, the lower the substitutability between brands, and the lower the share of tariff revenue in national income.
