Overcoming Domestic Interests

Based on the premise that firms operating in the United States are guaranteed the right to bring trade law actions against the "unfair" actions of their foreign competitors, these firms are in a strong position in which they can afford to disrupt (harass) the actions of their foreign competitors with few costs to themselves. This ability to engage in the selective exclusion of foreign firms' products from the U.S. market or force an increase in their price with the imposition of anti-dumping (AD) or countervailing duties (CVDs) is a type of industrial trade strategy carried out by U.S.-based firms and supported by the U.S. government in the application of its "unfair" trade law system. This occurs since the U.S. administrative agencies that carry out these actions on the behalf of U.S.-based firms, whether initiated directly by the firms or self initiated by the agencies, face no penalty when they file unjustified actions or false "unfair" trade claims. This abuse by U.S. producers of certain parts of the U.S. trade law mechanisms during the 1980s created severe repercussions for Canadian exporters to the United States. It was found to not only have complicated Canada-U.S. relations, but to be one of the leading causes of trade disruption with other U.S. major trading partners, in particular Japan. 1

This book has demonstrated that the government of the United States had failed to properly implement the GATT-based AD and CVD trade laws in a manner that would have been envisioned by many of the negotiators on past GATT Agreements for the rules covering those procedures. This was found to be result, in large part, from the decentralized system of policy making and implementation in the United States, which has encouraged the fragmentation
