  • W. M. Corden
Part of the Trade Policy Research Centre book series


The aim in this final chapter is to look at some broad issues concerned with the logic of subsidisation and protection, drawing where appropriate on the information in the six preceding studies and also on general economic theory.1 A particular generalisation will be put forward, but it would be wrong to conclude that it follows inevitably from the six earlier studies.
