Review of Theory Why Import Substitution? To protect infant industries Who are less competitive when they start out (hence “infant”) and have high per unit costs, because they have not had any “learning by doing” Providing protection from competition can (in theory) allow companies to experience a “learning curve”, reduce costs, and then become competitive So the idea of “import substitution” is to provide temporary protection to infant industries to let them grow Multiple ways of doing this in practice Tariffs, quotas, and other restrictions on imports Production subsidies for domestic firms
