An Overview of U.S. Unfair Trade Laws
AbstractThis review provides an overview of the United States' use of antidumping (AD) and countervailing duty (CVD) laws during the 1980-1994 period. Of particular emphasis in this review is the use of the these laws against Canada and Mexico in comparison with other similar countries. A review of the filing patterns makes it clear that these two laws are the primary weapons in the U.S.'s trade arsenal, frequently, restraining import trade. Overall, almost 60% of AD and CVD petitions result in trade restraints. Duties have averaged around 25% ad valorem and have ranged upwards of 200% ad valorem. In addition there is little evidence that Canada and Mexico have been the subject of an unusually large share of filings. Also, cases against Canada and Mexico have been less successful than cases filed against other countries.
