Abstract:

For political and economic reasons, the United States trades with countries whose economic systems, unlike ours, are under centralized government control. Because of these differences, U.S. laws designed to protect domestic industry from unfair or disruptive imports are difficult to apply to these nonmarket, principally Communist, countries. This report discusses how these laws and their implementing regulations could be improved to make them more effective and easier to administer while protecting domestic industries.
