Dr. Zanardi's comment on this article[edit]

Dr. Zanardi has reviewed this Wikipedia page, and provided us with the following comments to improve its quality:


I would adjust as follows:

1) "In economics, "dumping" is a kind of predatory pricing, especially in the context of international trade." to "In economics, "dumping" is a kind of pricing strategy, especially in the context of international trade." 2) "The term has a negative connotation, as advocates of competitive markets see "dumping" as a form of protectionism." to "The term has a negative connotation, as advocates of competitive markets see "dumping" as a form of unfair competition." 3) "Furthermore, advocates for workers and laborers believe that safeguarding businesses against predatory practices," to "Furthermore, advocates for workers and laborers believe that safeguarding businesses against such practices,"

In short, dumping is not about predatory pricing (i.e. only very few cases of dumping are explained by predatory pricing behavior.


We hope Wikipedians on this talk page can take advantage of these comments and improve the quality of the article accordingly.

Dr. Vandenbussche's comment on this article[edit]

Dr. Vandenbussche has reviewed this Wikipedia page, and provided us with the following comments to improve its quality:


European Union anti-dumping is under the purview of the European Council. It is governed by European Council regulation 384/96. However, implementation of anti-dumping actions (trade defence actions) is taken after voting by various committees with member state representation.

Comment: the actual antidumping investigations are carried out by the European Commission, DG Trade. That is where the preparatory work is being done. The Commission evaluates the collected evidence on dumping and injury in the light of the technical definitions of dumping and injury of GATT article VI. The EU Commission then makes a proposal to take protectionist action or not. This proposal is then taken to the level of the European council, which has representation of member states, that will then vote on the proposal to make the decision final. Protectionist action can be in the form of an import duty on the imported products from the targeted trade partner or it can involve a price-undertaking, which is a voluntary increase of the price by the exporter to the importing country to avoid dumping. While price-undertakings were very popular in the nineteen eighties, today they are only used in a minority of cases since they have been show to be quite anti-competitive and to kill price competition in the importing country (Veugelers and Vandenbussche, (1999),"European Antidumping Policy and the profitability of national and international collusion", European Economic Review, No. 43/1, pp. 1-28".
