Trade, Development and Political Economy presents
When Tariffs Disrupt Global Supply Chains
Authors: Gene M. Grossman (Princeton University) and Elhanan Helpman (Harvard University)
Grossman and Helpman study unanticipated tariff on imports of intermediate goods in a setting with firm-to-firm supply relationships. Specifically, they study a setting where global supply chains are formed in anticipation of free trade, and, once they are in place, the home government surprises with an input tariff.
