I need to learn more about Government tariffs and quotas.


Answer by  BillShaw (31)

Governments use tariffs and quotas in an effort to raise money for their operation and to establish a level playing field for their domestic industries. Tariffs are taxes or fees levied on goods entering a country. Quotas are limits placed on goods entering a country. They each work to lower the effective cost of goods produced within the country.

Tariffs are taxes on things imported into a country. There are tariffs on imported things like oil, electronics, wood, coffee, and other goods you use every day. A quota is a limit on the amount that can be imported in the country. This means too much cannot be imported.
