Abstract

In most previous work on strategic trade policy, the form of government intervention has been prescribed in advance. In this paper, the authors apply a solution concept discussed by P. D. Klemperer and M. A. Meyer (1989) for games in which the strategy space consists of the class of all (non-state-contingent) price quantity schedules. They examine a series of specific assumptions on demand and supply conditions and derive the associated equilibrium trade policies. The authors derive welfare implications for all cases examined.
