Quantitative restrictions, unempolyment and welfare
AbstractThis paper explores the effects of import quotas and voluntary export restraints (VER) on employment and welfare of an economy plagued by generalized unemployment due to wage rigidity. The welfare effects of quotas and VER in the presence of unemployment are compared with those derived in the traditional full employment model. We show that a tightening of quotas or VER may improve welfare. Copyright Kluwer Academic Publishers 1991
