Critically discuss the following statement, using specific examples to illustrate your argument. Your essay should engage with applicable case-law and literature. In the Dassonville case ,( CASE: C-8/74 DASSONVILLE (ARREST) FREE MOVEMENT OF GOODS) the Court decided that any trade barrier is a measure having an equivalent effect to a quantitative restriction. The implicit logic of this decision seems to be: ‘Quantitative restrictions impede trade. Therefore, any sort of measure that impedes trade has “equivalent effect”.’ This is a bad argument. Critically discuss.
