TariffCalc – Program to Estimate the Impact of Tariff Changes
TariffCalc is a spreadsheet which gives you a simple estimate of the impact of a tariff change on a product. The sheet is self-contained and does not require VORSIM software (but does require the Excel spreadsheet on your computer). You enter data and parameters for a simple linear supply and demand model. Then the spreadsheet updates calculations, tables, and charts. Producer and consumer benefits are calculated. The model embodied in the sheet is a simple linear one (although some calculations are repeated with a non-linear version). Accompanying sheets show how to use TariffCalc.
