The OECD recently released its roundtable discussion and report summary on Dynamic Efficiencies in Merger Analysis.

These synergies, or “efficiencies,” can have very potent beneficial effects but are devilishly difficult to identify and measure. The Committee focused on dynamic efficiencies that facilitate or encourage innovation.
