Trade Liberalization and the Profitability of Domestic Mergers

Cahiers de recherche from Centre interuniversitaire de recherche en économie quantitative, CIREQ

Abstract: It is often thought that a tariff reduction, by opening up the domestic market to foreign firms, should lessen the need for a policy aimed at discouraging domestic mergers. This implicitly assumes that the tariff in question is sufficently high to prevent foreign firms from selling in the domestic market. However, not all tariffs are prohibitive, so that foreign firms may be present in the domestic market before it is abolished.
