Tariffs And Trade Liberalization With Network Externalities
This paper constructs a reciprocal market model of intra-industry trade in network goods to consider the implications of network externalities for an optimal tari policy and the welfare e ects of bilateral tari reductions. We show that the degree of network externalities nontrivially a ects the sign of the Nash equilibrium tari . Then, we prove that network externalities amplify the gains from tari reductions. These results help better understand the implications of traderelated issues in network industries.
