The Saskatchewan Potash Industry and the 1987 U.S. Antidumping Action


Author Info

Registered author(s):


    This paper examines the U.S. antidumping allegations against the Saskatchewan potash industry. It concludes that the U.S. "fair trade" laws and the administration of them were essentially used to protect the U.S. industry as it continues its long run decline due to exhaustion of reserves. It then considers whether the recent Canada-U.S. comprehensive trade agreement will grant any relief to Canadian industries from such actions in the future and concludes that it likely will not. It also briefly considers why it took antidumping charges by the U.S. to stimulate the Saskatchewan potash industry to take action in its own self interest and exercise its monopoly power.
