A tariff raises the price for consumers which lead to the decline in imports. Before a tariff is imposed the domestic price equals the world price. If tariff is imposed it raises the price of imported goods above the world price. The tariff causes the quantity of imports to reduce and moves the domestic market closer to its equilibrium without trade (Mankiw. pg. 173).

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
