Abstract

This paper investigates the economic factors that best explain the decisions of the International Trade Commission in administering the injury provisions of US antidumping, countervailing duty, and safeguard laws during the 1980s. Utilizing the economic data collected by the Commission for each investigation, it attempts to ascertain through regression analysis how strictly the commissioners have interpreted these laws in recent years, in terms of the economic conditions required for finding that an industry has been injured, and for establishing a causal relationship between imports and this injury.
