    (Pontificia Universidad Catolica de Peru)

Este ensayo desarrolla un modelo de dumping internacional bajo mercados de competencia imperfecta donde las empresas explotan sus ventajas comparativas. El analisis de estatica comparativa sugiere, primero, que bajo libre comercio y una politica de competencia coordinada un producto con dumping puede aumentar el bienestar economico para el pais importador bajo diversas estructuras de mercado de dichos productos. Estos beneficios surgen de precios importados mas bajos y de un aumento de la competencia en el mercado domestico. Segundo, en ausencia de estas politicas de competencia coordinadas entre paises, el comercio de productos con dumping cuando los mercados de los productos son de competencia imperfecta si puede producir perdidas para el pais importador. Tercero, el analisis de bienestar de instrumentos compensatorios al dumping indica que dichas medidas comerciales son las menos convenientes para el pais importador. La mejor politica es libre comercio acompanada de una politica de competencia coordinada entre paises. Cuarto, el modelo en adicion permite identificar instrumentos alternativos que mejoran el bienestar del pais importador de bienes comerciados con dumping.
