 Tariff - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Tax, tariff and trade rules in modern times are usually set together because of their common impact on industrial policy, investment policy and agricultural policy.
A trade bloc is a group of allied countries agreeing to minimize or eliminate tariffs against trade with each other, and possibly to impose protective tariffs on imports from outside the bloc.
Historians and economists have always been perplexed, because every analysis of the real economic impact of tariffs has shown their effect to be rather small on the economy as a whole, of minor importance to the economies of different regions, and of substantial importance to only a handful of industries (especially wool and automobiles).

 Tax, tariff and trade - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Critics of these movements and defenders of free trade and global investment liberalization respond that the older ideas of independent trade policy, investment policy and industrial policy assumed that a higher degree of control by governments over business was possible.
Critics of this process, notably in the safe trade, fair trade, and anti-globalization movements, argue that this is itself a race to the bottom, in standards and regulations.
Thus some subsidies, and agricultural policy, are not part of the same negotiations as lead to tax, tariff and trade rule changes.

 Tariff - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-08-20)
A tariff is a tax placed on imported and/or exported goods, sometimes called a customs duty.
Some economic ideologies hold that tariffs are a harmful interference with the laws of the free market.
They believe that it is disadvantageous for a country to artificially maintain an inefficient industry, and that it is better to allow it to collapse and to allow a new one to develop in its place.

 Balance of trade - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-08-20)
A positive balance of trade is known as a trade surplus and consists of exporting more (in financial capital terms) than one imports.
Monetary trade balance is different from physical trade balance (which is expressed in amount of raw materials).
Although the EU (and other developed countries) has a balanced monetary trade balance, its physical trade balance (especially with developing countries) is negative, meaning that in terms of materials a lot more is imported than exported.

 Race to the bottom - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-08-20)
The dismantling of tariffs and other trade barriers, facilitated by the rules set within the World Trade Organization, and encouraged (in the South) by US influence through the World Bank and the IMF, may have removed an important constraint on races-to-the-bottom; without protected domestic industries, countries are more dependent on liquid investment capital.
Moral purchasing can influence decisions at the level of individual buyers, or it can involve forbidding or applying heavy tax, tariff and trade sanctions to nations that permit the export of offensive goods, re-directing revenues raised from such tax or tariff to combating abuses.
The positive argument for free trade rests on the economic theory of comparative advantage, which in turn depends on the necessary condition of "capital immobility." If financial (or labor) resources can move between countries, then the comparative advantage theory erodes, and absolute advantage dominates.

A specfic tariff is a tariff of a specific amount of money that does not vary with the price of the good.
These tariffs are far harder to implelment as knowning what amount to set them at is difficult and needs to be constantly updated due to changes in the market or inflation.

 Means of persuasion - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-08-20)
In modern macroeconomics there is more emphasis on the role of political factors such as diplomacy, especially in the behavior of trade blocs.
There is, especially in the anti-globalization movement, concern that the means by which nation-states are persuaded to enter into trade pacts subvert democracy - forcing nations for instance to abandon an industrial policy or investment policy or agricultural policy to gain entry to key markets.
The means of persuasion in this case, it is argued, is poverty that results from high tax, tariff and trade barriers which can only be reduced by agreeing to the terms of the bloc.

 Restricted Trade? Barriers to Trade in Mosquito Nets and Insecticides in sub-Saharan Africa   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-08-20)
The primary objective of the study was to assess the validity of the assumption that taxes and tariffs applied to mosquito nets and mosquito netting in SSA countries are so high as to be prohibitive and that removal of these barriers should result, therefore, in greater availability of cheaper mosquito nets and netting.
The study revealed that more accurate tariff, tax and trade data must be collected at the country level and a rigorous statistical analysis of this data be undertaken to more conclusively determine whether high tariffs are inhibiting imports of mosquito nets, netting and insecticides into sub-Saharan Africa.
The study advocates a better understanding of the tariff nomenclature and a clarification of the tariff classification of nets, netting and ITNs in individual SSA countries in order to more clearly assess their impact on trade flows, and if necessary, for helping to identify the most feasible options for tariff and tax removal negotiations.

 BALANCE OF TRADE FACTS AND INFORMATION   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-08-20)
Balance of trade figures, also called net exports (NX), are the sum of the money gained by a given economy by selling exports, minus the cost of buying imports.
A negative balance of trade is known as a trade deficit or, informally, as a trade gap, and consists of importing more than one exports.
The metaphor of trade as some kind of battle, where surplus countries win and deficit countries lose, ignores the observation that trade is based on regional specialization.

 Fiscal restructuring in the context of trade reform   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-08-20)
Trade tariff reform in India resulted in an uncompensated drop in the ratio of tax to GDP of two pecentage points between 1991 and 2001-02.
The theoretical literature on taxation suggests that the extra revenue be sourced from domestic indirect taxes, with a value-added tax (VAT) as the optimal instrument.
But this will reduce relative tax collections at the national (central government) level in favour of the subnational (state) level, and there may be political resistance to such restructuring at either the state or national levels.

The World Trade Organisation (WTO) has extracted commitments from the Philippines government, making it lower import barriers to half their present levels over a span of six years, and allowing in drastically increased competition from the industrialised and heavily subsidised farming systems of North America and Europe.
The report estimates that in the absence of trade restrictions, US subsidised maize could be marketed at less than half the price of maize grown on the Philippine island of Mindanao; and that the livelihoods of up to half a million Filipino maize farmers (out of the total 1.2 million) are under immediate threat.

 Free Trade Agreements and Customs Unions, by Douglas A. Irwin: The Concise Encyclopedia of Economics: Library of ...
Free trade, usually defined as the absence of tariffs, quotas, or other governmental impediments to international trade, allows each country to specialize in the goods that it can produce cheaply and efficiently relative to other countries.
A customs union is a group of countries that eliminate all tariffs on trade among themselves but maintain a common external tariff on trade with countries outside the union (thus technically violating MFN).
Another concern is that greater reliance on a bilateral or regional approach to trade liberalization may undermine and supplant, instead of support and complement, the multilateral GATT approach.

 FY 1996 SEED REPORT (ESTONIA)   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-08-20)
A constitutionally-mandated balanced budget, 26% flat-rate income tax, tariff-free trade regime, fully convertible and strong currency, competitive commercial banking sector, and hospitable environment for foreign investment permitted Estonia to sign an EU Europe Agreement in June 1995 without a transition period.
Trade continued to expand in 1996; the large current account deficit reflects continuing brisk imports of capital goods.
Trade with Russia now totals less than a fifth of Estonia's total trade volume, while more than two-thirds of Estonian exports (textiles, food products, wood, timber products) are directed to Western markets.

 Trade war over genetically modified food   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-08-20)
In Europe, a series of unrelated food crises during the 1990s have created consumer apprehension about food safety in general, eroded public trust in government oversight of the food industry, and left some consumers unwilling to consider "science" to be a guarantee of quality.
The value of agricultural trade between the US and the European is estimated at $57 billion at the beginning of the 21st Century, and some in the U.S., especially farmers and food manufacturers, are concerned that the new proposal by the European Union could be a barrier to much of that trade.
The new European tax, tariff and trade proposal would particularly affect US maize gluten and soybean exports, as a high percentage of these crops are genetically modified in the USA (about 25 percent of US maize and 65 percent of soybeans are genetically modified in 2002).
