Moynihan Institute of Global Affairs
Trade, Development and Political Economy presents
When Tariffs Disrupt
Global Supply Chains
Authors: Gene M. Grossman
(Princeton University) and Elhanan Helpman (Harvard University)
Grossman and Helpman study
unanticipated tariff on imports of intermediate goods in a setting with
firm-to-firm supply relationships. Specifically, they study a setting where
global supply chains are formed in anticipation of free trade, and, once they
are in place, the home government surprises with an input tariff.

professional honors and awards including the Onassis Prize in International
Trade, the Harry G. Johnson Prize, the Bernard-Harms Prize and fellowships from
