This thesis considers the possibility and implications of product dumping under a variety of different environments. The first cases we consider follow directly from the Brander-Krugman Reciprocal Dumping model first introduced to the literature in 1982. Following our analysis of these, we next analyze the Brander-Krugman model in the context of a sequential game. However, the most important finding from this analysis, in particular, is the paradox of a government's attempt at an information-coordinating trigger strategy. This finding has broad applications to current product-dumping policy since it serves to greatly enhance the welfare of the countries and industries involved.
