RECENT NATIONAL LEGISLATION DIRECTED TOWARDS THE PROBLEM OF COMPETITION IN OUR FOREIGN TRADE

I. THE ANTI-DUMPING ACT OF 19211

Sec. 201. Dumping Investigation

Sections 337 and 338 of the Hawley-Smoot Tariff Act of 1930 are, of course, closely related to the purposes of the Anti-Dumping Act; but the Tariff Commission is not an administrative or executive body. It is a "fact-finding" organization.
