How to tell good industrial policy from bad

Gillian Tett, Financial Times, highlights research by Fuad Hasanov and Reda Cherif, IMF, advocating that encouraging exports rather than slapping tariffs on imports works best.

“As Cherif and Hasanov told a seminar at Cambridge’s Bennett Institute this week, there is an important difference between policies that try to create growth by shielding domestic companies from foreign competition and those which help those companies compete more effectively on the world stage. ”
