Much Ado About Nothing? Italian Trade Policy in the late 19th Century
AbstractA simple look at nominal or effective tariff rates is not sufficient to analyse the trade policy. One has to consider the overall effects of protection, and by definition this requires a general equilibrium approach. The present paper aims to fill this gap in the literature. It makes use of a computable general equilibrium (CGE) model of the Italian economy in 1911 -the first year for which the available data are abundant and reliable enough for such an exercise.
