Taxes antidumping et règle des faits disponibles
Because of the high duties it imposes on imported goods, the antidumping procedure has become an important impediment to free trade. A possible explanation for these high taxes is the “facts available” rule that allows the agency that administer antidumping to set charges on the basis of information provided solely by domestic firms. This paper focuses on this important feature of the duty determination process. Taking into account a “domestic politics” effect through a bias toward domestic firms in the agency’s preferences, we show that the facts available rule can imply high antidumping duties both directly and indirectly. Classification JEL : F13, D82.
