The economic effects of widespread application of antidumping duties to import pricing
AbstractDumping accurs when a firm charges a price in the foreign market below its price in the domestic market when it supplies the indentical good to both markets. Provisions within the GATT allow member countries to impose antidumping (AD) duties to counteract this behavior and return the price of the dumped goods to its"fair value". The increasing incidence of dumping allegations and imposition of AD duties indicate the dumping of exports in foreign markets is a growing concern in international trade and policy discussions. The other studies of this volume have presented in quite impressive detail the evolution and present ubiquity of AD investigations and duties in import-competing countries, and have also addressed the issue of whether these trends truly indicate a rise in dumping activity. In this paper the authors focus on a separate, more theoretical issue: what is the impact of widespread dumping and use of AD duties on the exporting and importing economies?
