I realize that papermaking is only a vehicle for discussing newspaper-making in this post, but there is some hope beyond anti-dumping laws.

Papermaking is a very water- and energy-intensive process. As with steel and glass, some basic manufacturing of paper might stay in the US or return because of the recent abundance of domestically-produced natural gas.

In particular, the upper Great Lakes region is the closest major industrial area to the North Dakota Bakken shale. Water + energy = basic manufacturing.
