Trading Cases: Increase in steel protectionism casts 'fair play' against free trade

June 16, 2015 (9:56 mins)



Chris Davis, Peter Brennan, & Sebastian Lewis

Recent steel anti-dumping measures in the US and Europe against mainly Chinese product have once again brought international trade disputes into the spotlight. Platts own hot rolled coils, Peter Brennan, Chris Davis, and Sebastian Lewis debate whether, like Dirty Harry, the US is right to make domestic steel producers feel lucky, or whether, from both China and the end-users perspective, this represents a restraint of free trade and a path to higher steel prices.

They also discuss whether China's "One Belt, One Road" policy to open up new trade routes will make the argument null and void as steel product finds new homes in non-traditional markets.
