摘要

This paper employs a vertically-related model to examine the protection and welfare effects of antidumping (AD) duty and price undertaking policies on intermediate good markets. We assume that the intermediate products are identical but the final products are horizontally differentiated. Findings show that, comparing to free trade, imposing AD duty on intermediate good market increases the profits of the domestic upstream firm and industry and welfare at the expense of profit of the domestic downstream firm, consumer surplus and world welfare. By contrast, a price undertaking policy always hurts domestic downstream firm, it benefits the domestic upstream firm, industry, consumers, welfare and world welfare if the degree of product differentiation of the final products is large. It is also found that an AD duty is superior (inferior) to a price undertaking policy in terms of world welfare and industrial profitability if the degree of product differentiation is small (large). However, an AD duty is more desirable than a price undertaking from the perspective of the domestic government. Finally, if the foreign upstream firm can choose between the two policies, it always prefers price undertaking to AD duty.
