Beyond Tariffs and Imports: New World Bank Working Paper
Oftentimes we think of trade policy as involving tariffs and as being import restrictive. In this new working paper, my co-author and I demonstrate how it’s beyond that, by looking at trade policy in the form of non-tariff measures and as having an anti-export bias. We do this by linking these policies to firms that trade in Indonesia.
I am happy to share the paper, which has been over 18 months in the making and with thanks to a lot of people mentioned in the acknowledgements. Please feel free to download the World Bank Working Paper at this link and/or visit my research page for more updates on my research.
