討論提要

This paper employs an import model to analyze the trade protection and welfare effects of an antidumping duty and price undertaking under different dumping measures (i.e., injury margin and dumping margin). It is found that price undertaking is necessarily superior to an antidumping duty in terms of the protection effect under both dumping measures. In addition, the dumping firm always prefers an antidumping duty with a dumping margin (an injury margin if the cost disadvantage of the domestic firm is high). As for the welfare analysis, we show that when the injury (dumping) margin is employed, an antidumping duty is more socially desirable than price undertaking (if the cost disadvantage of the domestic firm is high). This result has the following policy implication: if the cost disadvantage of the host country is high, both antidumping policies incur a tradeoff between domestic welfare and firm protection irrespective of the adopted dumping measures. However, if the cost disadvantage of the domestic firm is low, imposing price undertaking is superior to an antidumping duty in terms of welfare and market protection if the injury is measured by the dumping margin.
