I have been hearing for the last few years that we are just a year away from serious change in the Brazilian antitrust system - sort of like the common saying that Brazil is the country of the future. Well, the future may be now on both counts. On the antitrust front Arthur Badin (President of CADE) suggested that changes to the Brazlian competition system should be passed by the legislature by end of the year.
For some insights into the Brazilian competition system, you might want to see some of these insightful chapters in my book (co-edited with Eleanor Fox), Latin American Competition Law and Policy. See here for the table of contents. Purchase the book here.
