US TRADE BARRIERS AND IMPORT PRICE OF CANADIAN SOFTWOOD LUMBER

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

    Abstract

    The impact of US trade barriers and demand factors on import prices of Canadian softwood lumber is examined using time series analysis of quarterly data from 1989–2006. The results suggest that the previous quarter import price of softwood lumber, US producer price, and US housing starts, and the current quarter US producer price of softwood lumber have significant impacts on the import price of Canadian softwood lumber with 0.69, 1.92, 0.10 and −1.64 as respective elasticities. Among trade barriers examined, a softwood quota raises the import price but a high tariff lowers it.
