The Growing Problem of Antidumping Protection

Show Summary Details


This chapter focuses on the growing problem related to antidumping (AD) protection in East Asia. It highlights the disconnection between the theoretical justification for and the actual practice of AD protection and analyzes AD protection by and against Asia-Pacific countries. This chapter shows that AD policy is growing quickly because new users of the legislation are filing at much faster rates than traditional users. The most common users of AD policy are industries that are losing comparative advantage and countries that experience large exchange rate and other macroeconomic shocks.

Keywords: antidumping protection; East Asia; Asia-Pacific countries; industries; comparative advantage; exchange rate shocks; macroeconomic shocks
