The Political-Support Approach To Protection
AbstractThis paper offers a selective interpretation of the literature on the political-support component of the political economy of international trade policy. Much of this literature is characterized either by a discrepancy between what policymakers say they are doing and how the theory models their actions (the Cognitive Dissonance problem) or by a lack of a detailed microeconomic foundation (the Black Box problem).
