Title: Backfiring with Backhaul Problems: Trade and Industrial Policies with Endogenous Transport Costs
School: Hitotsubashi University
Room: Saunders 515

The trade barriers due to transportation costs are as large as those due to tariffs. This paper studies the effects of trade policies given endogenous transportation costs. Transport firms need to commit to a shipping capacity sufficient for a round trip. Because of such "backhaul problems," each country's trade restrictions may backfire: a country's import restrictions may also decrease its exports, possibly increasing the foreign exporting firms' profits at the expense of the domestic exporting firms' lower profits. Our trade model with an explicit transportation sector also generates a non-conventional result regarding foreign direct investment.
