On the Effects of Anti-dumping Legislation

Pedro Barros () and Xavier Martinez-Giralt ()

No 1590, CEPR Discussion Papers from C.E.P.R. Discussion Papers

Abstract: We show that the nature and extent of trade is significantly affected by the pricing policy that firms are allowed to employ. A switch from discriminatory to non-discriminatory pricing (e.g. strict anti-dumping laws) leads to a switch from two-way trade to one-way trade. It is far from true that consumers will necessarily be favoured by such a policy switch. The distribution of gains is also significantly affected by relative country size.
