摘要

This paper aims to explain two important phenomenon, that is, why anti-dumping retaliation occurs and whether anti-dumping retaliation makes anti-dumping protection more likely or less likely to happen. It is found that firms’ product R&D played an important role. Unilateral anti-dumping policy discourages the R&D incentive of the protected firm while it stimulates that of the constrained firm. In addition, the total product R&D investment is lower than that under free trade, which in turn may deteriorate the profit of protected firm. However, the profit of the protected firm increases. Moreover, we show that the constrained firm has the incentive to petition for a fight-back anti-dumping policy only if the level of product R&D can be endogenously determined. Finally, such an anti-dumping retaliation increases the incentive of the protected firm to petition for an anti-dumping protection only if the level of product R&D is large enough; otherwise, anti-dumping retaliations discourage the protected firm to petition for an anti-dumping protection.
