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.
