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.
