This article reveals the growing theoretical literature on the effects of antidumping, a trade policy that has emerged as the most serious impediment to international trade. This article shows that antidumping has nothing to do with predatory pricing and with keeping trade “fair”. It is a modern form of protection and simply another tool to improve the competitive position of the complainant against other foreign companies. Institutional process surrounding the investigation and the filing decision have protective impact on firms’ decisions in the market, leading to a wealth of potential strategic actions and distorted market outcomes. Sometimes the mere presence of antidumping law, with its established rules for determining outcomes, alters incentives for market participants. This theme underlies this discussion as this article reviews the literature in three broad areas connected with different phases of the antidumping trade policy process: pre-investigation, investigation, and post-investigation.
