Tariff Quotas in the United States

Tariff quotas in the United States occupy only a very marginal place in its commercial policy at the present time.. In fact, a recent four-volume study of the Tariff Commission1 dealing with trade barriers in the United States, and comparing them with those in other countries, hardly refers to this tool of commercial policy.2 Nevertheless, the accumulated experience in this field in the United States is of interest and is valuable since it adds to knowledge of the topic in general, and may prove instructive when considering the application of this tool.
