A couple years back this was a huge case. "Asian reports said that the US International Trade Commission (ITC) has ruled that Japanese sales of supercomputers into its home market will damage American-built boxes Last month, NEC asked the US Supreme Court to stop the Commerce Department from dumping SX-4 machines into the home market. Now, if Japanese companies attempt to sell their super-tin to US government agencies, such sales will be prima facie, construed as dumping. That will mean punitive anti-dumping duties will be levied".
This practice of international dumping is one that has been going on a lot over the last several years. The company doing the dumping cuts the price to where eventually they put the other company out of business in a given market and then of course the price goes back up. In this case I am glad Merc won. The Japanese and Chinese have very tough anti-dumping laws against American companies in some cases eliminating our products from hitting their shores unfairly. Even if our goods are priced at parity they still scream foul and add taxes to our goods. How many American luxury cars do you see being exported to Japan? How many Corvettes? There is a big demand for these goods but for SOME reason they are scarce.
