Argentina and Competition Policy

Posted by D. Daniel Sokol

As reported by the Global Competition Review and sister publication Latin Lawyer, the current administration in Argentina has proposed to include "macro-economic" factors in antitrust analysis.  This is code for an approach that would include political economy considerations into antitrust analysis and move Argentina away from an economics based consumer welfare approach.  This would be a terrible development as it would lead to greater unpredictability and false prosecutions based on a political agenda.

On the topic of Argetine antitrust, there is an upcoming conference worth attending.
