摘要:

Trade protectionism enables the government to apply tariffs to foreign competitors to benefit industries at home. Under asymmetric oligopoly, a welfare-maximizing tariff is known to improve domestic welfare. This paper endogenizes bargaining power between industry and government to analytically characterize an endogenous lobby formation in relation to import tariffs. Contrary to the findings reported in the existing political economy literature, the paper shows that the free rider problem always emerges in an asymmetric oligopoly. Since tariffs increase with campaign contributions, the serious problem of free-riding in the market lowers lobby-endogenous tariffs, with the rates subsequently approaching welfare-maximizing levels. Interestingly, an increase in lobbying-endogenous tariffs decreases social welfare in the game. The magnitude of the reduction of social welfare under cooperative lobbying-endogenous tariffs is greater than it under non-cooperative lobbying-endogenous tariffs. Compared with the social welfare level in the free trade scenario, this paper further shows that welfare-maximizing tariffs improve welfare whereas lobby-endogenous tariffs reduce it. As a result, welfare-improving trade liberalization occurs if the government removes lobby-endogeneous tariffs and move toward free trade.
