Yet before reaching any conclusion, one needs to examine the evidence supporting this claim. This appears to consist mainly of effective rates of protection (ERP) estimates, notably Westphal and Kim's (1982). The latter are shown in Table 2, and it seems clear that the figures for manufacturing and 'all industries' back allegations that the trade regime had low nominal and effective rates of protection, and was trade neutral insofar as effective subsidies did not significantly favour either exports or domestic sales.
However, as Corden (1974:271) acknowledges, it remains likely to occur in the case of non-tradables, and, as demonstrated by Pack and Westphal (1986: 111), it might be relevant even to tradables given the strong interdependence between the comparative advantages of upstream and downstream industries. Local production of inputs, for instance, might imply in domestic prices lower than import prices, because of transaction costs and a set of characteristics more appropriate to the local market. This price differential, in turn, might be a matter of 'life or death' to a downstream industry.

Economies of scope are largely attributed to inputs that are readily shared in the production of different products. For instance, multiproduct firms can economize on management services by having a common pool of financial planners, accountants and market researchers, or they can optimize the use of machinery that is not product specific. Yet, there are also other multiproduct economies that are not linked to 'public inputs'.
