A tariff brings gains for domestic producers who face import competition. It is likely that tariffs of the importing country result in retaliation from the exporting country, and both countries end up losing most of the gains from trade. Suppose we assume that the terms of trade of the nation imposing the tariff improve and those of the trade partner deteriorate. Facing both a lower volume of exports and deteriorating terms of trade, the trade partner’s welfare declines. Consequently, the trade partner is likely to retaliate and impose a counter tariff.
