The United States furniture industry has been affected by the amount of wooden bedroom furniture that has been imported from China over the past five years. In 2003, the domestic industry decided to fight the low-cost Chinese imports by filing suit and instituting trade barriers against the Chinese- who were accused of illegally dumping furniture into the U.S. The following study explores not only the legitimacy of the charge but the larger question of whether or not protective tariffs are warranted.
