Costs And Consequences Of The New Protectionism: The Case Of Canada’S Clothing Sector

Listed author(s):
  • Glenn Jenkins


    (Queen's University, Kingston, On, Canada)

This paper analyzes the impact of the present tariff and bilateral quantitative restrictions for clothing on welfare of consumers and producers specifically, the resource cost of this policy for Canada as a whole, and the implications of these policies for the future development of the clothing sector. This sector was chosen because it is a relatively important industry in Canada and illustrates clearly how protection has generated both economic waste and perverse restructuring of the industry.
