Don't give us cheap (high-quality) papers. We're rich, you know...

By imposing an anti-dumping measure on Indonesian paper products, the US Department of Commerce is saying: "Please don't sell us quality goods at a cheap price; we'd like our consumers to pay more for the same goods (whisper: as long as they are made in the Great US of A)!". Anti-dumping policies are (supposedly) enforced against "predatory foreign firms", but the above applications are total nonsense, as pointed out by these and this economists from both sides of the Pacific.
