Can a Periodic VER Raise Importing Country Welfare?
AbstractSeveral authors have argued that if exporting firms anticipate a voluntary expor t restriction in a future period, and they expect VERs to be allocated in p ro p o rtion to past exports, then they have an incentive to dump in the earlier period. In this paper we ask: How does a regime characterized by periodic VERs affect aggregate welfare, consumer welfare and import-competing pro - ducer welfare in the importing country? We discover paradoxically, that the answers are all uncertain. However, such a regime always shrinks worldwide efficiency, and normally, for the importer it shrinks aggregate welfare and consumer welfare and raises producer welfare.
