Análisis del efecto económico de la aplicación de una medida de salvaguarda: el caso de la industria del triplay


  • Arturo Pérez Mendoza

    (Tecnológico de Monterrey, Campus Ciudad de México)


This paper uses an applied general equilibrium model to analyze the eventual effect of the application of a safeguard measure to the imports of plywood panels (three-ply). Basic results suggest the following. In first place, a safeguard measure of 35% applied to the imports of plywood panels increases the domestic production of this good, but it reduces the aggregate production of the Mexican economy. In second place, the effect on the consumer welfare is negative too. As a consequence, the safeguard should be eliminated.
