Estónia: O Impacto da Adesão à UE.

Johan Norberg relata o efeito efeito da imposição de tarifas alfandegárias aos produtos alimentares na Estónia.

Estonia, one of the world?s most liberal countries, which had abolished all its tariffs and completely deregulated agriculture, has since 1999 been forced to implement more than 10 000 EU tariffs. Since then, slowly but steadily prices have been raised. The transition was finalised in May when price controls and production quotas were introduced. Despite the fact that they already had done so much, to avoid big disturbances, this is the rise in the price of a standard basket of groceries in Estonia:

April 2004: 636:29 EEK
May 2004: 640:61 EEK
October 2004: 665:06 EEK

This is the average. The sugar price in Estonia has risen three-fold since last April.
