Abstract:

Dumping is the selling of an import at a price below its cost of production or below the price at which the manufacturer sells the good in its own domestic market. U.S. antidumping law views such imports as being sold at less than fair value. Under the law, duties are imposed on dumped imports that cause material injury to the competing U.S. industry. Almost any injury that is not negligible is considered to be material. The duties are set equal to the difference between the market price and the administratively determined fair value. Many other countries have similar laws.
