- Full Report:
The Antidumping Act of 1921, as amended, is costly, time-consuming and extremely burdensome to administer, primarily because its provisions are complex and some are imprecise. Dumping is the practice of exporting goods at unfair prices. Although access to dumped goods may benefit consumers and dampen inflationary trends, it may cause the affected domestic industry to lose sales and possibly reduce production and employment.
