    This paper examines the effects of an unanticipated tariff on the current account and the exchange rate. It is demonstrated that if nontraded goods and importables are substitutes (complements) in excess demand, the imposition of a tariff will (may) lead to a current account surplus (deficit) and an appreciation (depreciation) of the domestic currency. The model can be extended to analyze the effects of other real disturbances on the current account and the exchange rate. © 1982.
