Tariff quota in Global Commerce Policy

In this regard, a definition of this issue is as follows: the application of a reduced tariff rate for a specified quantity of imported goods. The entries on trade policy are here. Imports above this specified quantity face a higher tariff rate. Some claim that tariff quotas liberalize trade since, in contrast to import quotas, there is no ceiling on imports under this system. This assumption can be quite erroneous. The difference between the in-quota tariff and the out-of-quota tariff often is so large as to preclude any trade at the higher rate.
