Trade Liberalization and Productivity Growth: Time-Series Evidence from Australian Manufacturing
This paper uses historical annual data for twenty-seven years from 1968-69 on eight two-digit ANZSIC industries to assess the impact of the changes in industry assistance on economic efficiency. The empirical analysis shows that a 1 percent decline in the nominal rate of assistance leads to between 0.18 and 0.56 percent gain in total factor productivity, the latter the author's measure of economic efficiency. This finding has strong policy implications for the future of tariff reform in the manufacturing sector. Copyright 1999 by The Economic Society of Australia.
