Implementing Results-Oriented Trade Policies: The Case of the US-Japanese Auto Parts Dispute
NBER Working Paper No. 5680
Why would the US threaten punitive tariffs on luxury autos to implement a market share target in auto parts? We show that by making threats to a linked market, a market share may be implemented with fairly weak informa- tional and administrative requirements. Moreover, such policies can be both pro-competitive and advatageous to US firms.
