The European Union feels pressure to protect their sport shoe manufacturers from US competition. They can choose from imposing a tariff or forbid any import of shoes from outside the EU or do nothing i.e. continue with free trade.?
The protectionist demands a total ban on imports to protect the important European shoe industry and if that is not possible at least impose a tariff to raise the European price to EUR 75 from the current price of EUR50.
The three different choices lead to the following result according to industry analysts:?
With Free Trade With a tariff of EUR 25With no trade (trade is banned)
European price per pairEUR 50EUR 75EUR 100
