Rent Seeking, Protectionism and Innovation in the American Steel Industry
AbstractTrade protection in a declining industry can cause damages beyond those revealed in the usual trade diagram analysis. Using data on the U.S. steel firms, the authors show that trade protection in that industry rewards poor performance, reduces incentives to innovate, and frustrates the normal Schumpeterian process of creative destruction.
