Abstract

This article examines the determinants of Russian trade policy using the case of ‘Mendeleev’s Tariff’ introduced in 1891. The tariff is widely recognized as the basis of Russia’s rapid industrial development at the turn of the centuries and believed to be aimed at primarily supporting manufacturers. Applying the Grossman & Helpman ‘Protection for Sale’ Model (1994) with the modifications applied by Gawande, et al. (2015), I find that tariff revenue collection was the government’s primary concern during the 1891 tariff reform, leaving producers’ and consumers’ interest far behind.
