Quantitative Import Restrictions and Optimal Capital Taxes under a System of Tax Credits


  • Michael, Michael
  • Hatzipanayotou, Panos


This paper examines the optimal capital tax policy under quantitative import constraints, and international capital tax credits. for a small capital-importing country, the optimal capital tax equals the foreign tax under a quota, and equals or exceeds the foreign tax under a VER. For a small capital-exporting country, the optimal policy towards capital is a zero tax under a quota, and a tax or subsidy under a VER. Also examined are the welfare effects of capital taxes and trade liberalization, and the joint setting of the two policies, where both instruments are available to the government.
