The aim in this final chapter is to look at some broad issues concerned with the logic of subsidisation and protection, drawing where appropriate on the information in the six preceding studies and also on general economic theory. 1 A particular generalisation will be put forward, but it would be wrong to conclude that it follows inevitably from the six earlier studies.
Although much of the formal discussion is in terms of a combination of the above policy instruments, the basic interest lies in the comparison between pure strategies of devaluation, versus two kinds of import restrictions, namely tar~ffs only or quotas only, these three strategies being special cases of the general combination of tr.

The main goals of foreign trade policy are:, the volume change of exports and imports;, changes in the structure of foreign trade . The basic line of government control of international trade is the application of two different types of foreign trade policy in combination: liberalization (free trade policy) and protectionism. Under the free trade policy is understood the minimum of state interference in foreign trade, which developed on the basis of free market forces of supply and demand, and under the protectionism - the state policy, which provides the protecting of the domestic market from foreign competition through the use of tariff and non-tariff trade policy instruments.

This paper studies how cross-sector strategic trade policy affects wages, country-wide profits, and welfare. I develop a simple model of two-country general oligopolistic equilibrium. This paper examines optimal strategic trade policy under oligopoly with many home and foreign firms when firms have different levels of efficiency and a trade-off exists between the subsidy bill and firms’ profits.
