Adjustability in production and dynamic effects of domestic competition policy
This study explores the effect on trade balance of suppressing competition in the domestic non-tradable sector through the interaction between the short-run adjustment and the long-run adjustment in production process. Constructing a model that can capture a more short-run aspect than Yano (2001), this study demonstrates that the effect depends on the factor intensity ranking between the tradable sector and the non-tradable sector. In this model, a change in the price of the tradable good at time 0 plays an important role to explain this result.
