Commercial Policy and Policy Conflict: An Evaluation of the Incidence of Protection in a Non-industrialized Economy

Abstract: In recent years, incidence analysis has emerged as an alternative to effective protection and domestic resource costs as a methodology for evaluating the impact of protection. This paper outlines a simple incidence model and estimates the incidence of protection in the Ivory Coast. Both annual and quarterly data are deployed, encompassing the period 1960-84. The results suggest that a significant proportion of the incidence of protection is shifted to the export sector. The data set is also used to estimate true tariffs and true subsidies. It would seem that nominal tariffs and subsidies may overstate true protection to the import substitute sector and understate true disprotection to the export sector.
