Does antidumping cause investment and R&D?: Evidence from Turkey

Veysel Avsar () and Nurgul Sevinc

Applied Economics, 2019, vol. 51, issue 52, 5674-5682

Abstract: This article employs Turkish firm-level data and analyses the effect of antidumping protection on capital spending and Research and Development (R&D). Using matching techniques and alternative control groups and applying difference-in-difference methodology, we find that antidumping duties imposed by the Turkish government significantly increase fixed investment and R&D expenditures. We also show that antidumping duties are effective in terms of increasing the domestic sales. To our knowledge, our article represents the first attempt to analyse the effect of antidumping policy in Turkey, a very active user of temporary trade barriers, using firm-level data.
