Expenditure switching policies

These are policies designed to change the relative prices of exports and imports to help reduce the size of a country's external deficit. For example - an exchange rate depreciation can improve the price competitiveness of exports and make imports more expensive when priced in a domestic currency. Import tariffs are designed to create expenditure-switching effects by making imports more expensive.
