Key exam point:

Most students in exam questions on protectionism focus their answers on import tariffs. The best students recognise that there are many types of trade restriction and they make a clear distinction between tariff and non-tariff barriers. There are many subtle forms of trade restriction, sometimes known as “hidden protectionism” and it is a good idea to have some recent applied examples of these in your study notes ahead of your final exam.
