Antitrust In the New U.S. Administration: A Transatlantic View

Posted by D. Daniel Sokol

Ioannis Lianos (UCL - Law) and Abel Mateus (New University of Lisbon - Economics) provide us with Antitrust In the New U.S. Administration: A Transatlantic View.

ABSTRACT: The election of the new democratic administration in the United States in November 2008 was overwhelmingly greeted in Europe as an opportunity to reinforce transatlantic cooperation and convergence in competition law and policy. This study evaluates the plausibility of greater convergence between EC competition law and U.S. antitrust law in a number of areas: single-firm conduct, vertical contractual restraints, mergers, and state action (state subsidies).
