The Wider Concerns of Competition Law

Posted by D. Daniel Sokol

Okeoghene Odudu (Cambridge - Law) has posted The Wider Concerns of Competition Law.

ABSTRACT: In his recent book, Article 81 EC and Public Policy, Dr Christopher Townley promotes a vision of competition law that can be used to promote the general well-being of European Union citizens by requiring economic entities to promote general well-being and so participate in society as moral actors. This review article argues that the legitimate task of European Union competition law is much more modest than Townley envisions so that his version of competition law exceeds the limited competences conferred on the Union and the limits of justiciability.
