Abstract:In a recent article in this journal (vol. 69, no. 4, 2001), J. Fedderke and P. Vaze analysed the extent and effects of trade liberalization in South Africa during the 1990s. Their study quantified the extent of trade (tariff) liberalization in South Africa using a measure of the effective protection rate (ERP). Based on their ERP calculations Fedderke and Vaze found that 'more of South Africa's output is protected by tariffs in 1998 than in 1988', and hence deduced from this that 'the much-hyped liberalization of the South African economy has not been fully realized'. The present paper ascertains if this is indeed the case and if new evidence exists that gives more complete answers. (Response by J. Fedderke and P. Vaze in: The South African Journal of Economics, vol. 72, no. 2 (2004), p. 407-412). Bibliogr., notes, ref. [ASC Leiden abstract]
