Dumping

Dumping in terms of anti-competitive behaviour has 2 definitions:

Classically, dumping is a subset of what is known as predatory pricing[?]. Dumping in this sense is the act of selling a product at a loss now in order to drive competitors out of business, with the goal of raising prices when they do in order to recoup the investment.

In international trade law however, dumping is defined as simply the act of one country selling a product in another country below the cost of what it takes the makers of that product in that country to make the product.
