Thus, food is produced using labour LF and food-specific capital KF, whereas cloth is produced using labour L c and cloth-specific capital Kc. Because labour is freely mobile between sectors, the economy's total labour supply L is allocated so that the value of the marginal product of labour in each sector is equated to the money wage w. The nominal rental rate for food capital is denoted by rF, and the rate for cloth capital is r c . Because each type of capital 16 1 Basic international trade theory w/p c is locked into its own sector, r F and rc are not, in general, equal.

4). To realize this outcome under a tariff, the tariff has to be set at a rate which rotates the domestic price line from its free-trade position p* to positionp T , tangent to the production frontier at food output Y* (production point P T ). Consumption and welfare under the tariff are C T and wT, respectively. Suppose now that, instead of a tariff, the output objective has been realized by a production subsidy to producers of food. Like the tariff, the subsidy has to be set to yield a domestic producers' price pT.

Consumers are thus indifferent between the tariff and the subsidy at point C s , where a world price line is tangent to indifference curve wT. Because the production point must lie on the same world price line as the consumption point, the relevant subsidy must be such that production occurs at P s , where the world price line through C s cuts the production frontier. Because of the concavity of the production frontier and the convexity of the indifference surface, imports are higher under this subsidy than under the tariff.
