Firm Participation in Steel Industry Lobbying
AbstractWhy do firms participate in steel industry lobbying to obtain antidumping and countervailing duties? In contrast to previous work, the authors find that economic variables, measured at the industry level, do not significantly affect the degree of participation by individual firms. The authors find that steel producers tend to free-ride, but firms in segments of the steel industry that can control free riding tend to participate more. They also find that the distribution of benefits and the costs of contributing are significant determinants for the number of contributing firms. Copyright 1991 by Oxford University Press.
