Then, using a demand/supply diagram of a (small) home country for a good that is both produced at home and imported, illustrate and explain how the movement from a situation of a uniform tariff on imports of the good from all countries to a situation of a trade-diverting customs union with one particular country can affect consumer and producer surplus and government revenue in the home country.
