Lobbying and the structure of protection

The model's predictions for the structure of protection are related to underlying taste and technology parameters, and we derive analytically several propositions that are consistent with the stylized results of the empirical literature. Finnaly, numerical simulations are carried out for archetypal "rich" and "poor" economies.
