In terms of US government revenue, a quota on Japanese goods is different from a protective tariff in that
the US government gets more revenue from the quota than it would the tariff.
the tariff generates a loss of revenue for the U.S. government.
quotas effectively increase government revenue across the board while protective tariffs reduce revenue across the board.
the U.S. probably sustains less net revenue from a quota than a tariff.
the revenue from each would be equal.
