Abstract: 
Antidumping actions in the United States and EU are knownto be linked to macroeconomic conditions. In part, this is becausepositive injury findings may be easier to make in a downturn. Weexplore the evidence for Mexico, one of the main new antidumpingusing countries. Injury determination is also critica! in Mexico'santidumping policy, as a majority of unsuccessful complaints have beenrejected because of negative injury findings rather than negative findingsof dumping. Working with data from 1987 through 2000, we provideevidence for a relationship between macro-economic factors andantidumping complaints, including current account and exchange ratemovements, and both local and global general macroeconomicconditions.
