タイトル:Policing Foreign Tainted Products in a Global World
Abstract:This paper examines international trade involving tainted products in a model of quality choice, facing the claim that globalization should be halted due to numerous food incidents.
Particularly, we ask the following questions: (i) What are the conditions under which foreign firms choose to produce tainted goods? (ii) Does globalization via freer trade lower product safety? (iii) How is welfare ultimately affected? We show the existence of a free trade Nash equilibrium characterized by production and trade of high-quality non-tainted products. However, free trade cannot prevent the export of tainted goods, because the foreign firm may deviate under different combinations of parameters. We find tainting arises more easily, if the marginal-cost difference between high-quality and tainted production increases, or if errors of testing product quality occur, or in the presence of sabotage by rival firms.
