Incentive Compatible Trade Policies

We consider a two country trade model with production uncertainty. If

complete contingent markets do not exist, it is desirable for governments to

adopt some trade policies to share the production risk. A full information

policy involves income transfers across countries, which can be achieved by

equal import tariffs and export subsidies. With incomplete information we

consider incentive compatible trade policies, which are designed to be truth

revealing while partially sharing the production risk. In this case the

tariff in one country may differ from the export subsidy abroad.
