Kazunobu Hayakawa () and Toshiyuki Matsuura ()

No 178, IDE Discussion Papers from Institute of Developing Economies, Japan External Trade Organization(JETRO)

Research presented in this paper shows that the use of equations derived from such models against intermediate goods producers results in several problems.
