The above graph indicates that the world supply is elastic in nature and is indicated by a horizontal line showing SH+Q. The line DH indicates the overall demand in the market and the interaction of supply and demand indicates the market clearing conditions at different price and quantity levels.
Recently, US has imposed higher tariff on the import of tires from China in a bid to protect the ailing tire industry of the country which resulted into the job losses for last five years. (Whoriskey and Kornblut).
