    Abstract

    Antidumping (AD) and countervailing duty (CVD) procedures are governed by specific rules requiring both injury (by reason of imports) and dumping/subsidies, and thus might be expected to be less susceptible to pressures for protection arising from cyclical movements in the domestic macroeconomy. This paper investigates whether there is a connection between the state of domestic macroeconomic activity and pressures for protection under AD/CVD. Not unlike other forms of protection, the evidence suggests that pressures for protection under AD/CVD have advanced during periods of macroeconomic weakness and receded during periods of macroeconomic strength.
