Modelling economic effects of protectionism
Nowadays we hear a lot of talk in politics and also among several interest groups about limiting international trade and minimize the effects of globalization. The reasons can be different, depending on the political vision. Left leaning politicians often mention the strain on the environment or poor working conditions in low-wage countries as reason to limit free trade while right leaning populist and nationalist politicians tend to point to the loss of jobs in developed European economies associated with free trade. The topic of the lecture is not to discuss these political issues, whether to be in favour or against, but to model the economic effects of protectionism and understand which economic consequences it has for countries that adopt protectionist measures. This subject is very relevant with the Brexit at hand, to understand which issues individual companies from the EU may expect in the months to come.
