Report on Criminalization of Cartels Blocked by Australian Treasury
Posted by D. Daniel Sokol
We know that when firms collude and operate in secret, they are up to no good. What I did not expect was the government agencies might agree not to publish a report on cartels. Yet, this is exactly what has happened in Australia. An Administrative Appeals Tribunal in the "Land Down Under" has ruled against a freedom of information request to release the Working Party Report on the criminalization of cartels. The Working Party Report is the only detailed government discussion paper on the criminalization of cartel conduct but has been kept secret. I hope that Australian academics appeal this.
