Non-tariff Measures: What's Tariffs Got to Do with It?

After successive rounds of tariff reductions by GATT/WTO members, non-tariff measures (NTM) have increasingly become the focal point of multilateral trade negotiations. It remains an open question whether the liberalization in tariff rates has subsequently been weakened or even erased by increases in NTMs. The author systematically answers this question using a product-level global panel of WTO members over the period 1996-2018.
