Sample text

Reflecting upon the complex nature of domestic economic conflicts, there exist several alternative ways of formulating the process of economic policymaking in the domestic scene. Becker (1984) proposed pressure-group equilibrium following work by Stigler (1975) and others. In Becker's 26 formu1ation, apressure group spends money to inf1uence the government in such a way that the transfer of income from the opposing group shou1d take p1ace for the advantage of the group. However, since the transfer of income cannot be rea1ized by a pure po11 tax and according1y rea1ized by distorting taxes and subsidies, the Nash equi1ibrium exhibits the undesirab1e property that the society loses from the Paretian state not on1y because of dup1icated and ineffective 10bbying efforts of pressure groups, but also because of the 10ss due to distortion caused by the transfer payments.

Given the framework of the model, let us consider how lobbying pressure can influence the degree of protection. Here, we assume that the national strategy is restricted to the tariffs, that the level of the tariff rate is already chosen, and that only the probability of realizing the designated level of tariff is affected by lobbying and counterlobbying. Several cases are conceivable as to how the lobbying activities are organized. 1. There is a unified organization of import-competing industries, and that is the only agent that engages in lobbying.

3. In the case of VERs, even though the loss of consumers' surplus is identical, a rent is obtained by the foreign exporters or by the foreign government that rations quotas to exporters. ) Let us begin with the case where the amount of tariff to be taken by the negotiator is given, for example, at the level of maximizing tariff revenue or at the level of an optimal tariff. Let us assume, following Brock and Magee (1978, 1979), that the probability that the tariff is realized depends on the levels of contributions by various 29 agents of the economy.
