Competition Law And Economics: Advances in Competition Policy Enforcement in the EU and North America

Posted by D. Daniel Sokol

Abel M. Mateus, (Professor of Economics, New University of Lisbon) and Teresa Moreira (Faculty of Law, University of Lisbon, Portugal) have edited Competition Law And Economics: Advances in Competition Policy Enforcement in the EU and North America.

ABSTRACT:  There is broad consensus on the fight against cartels, with some countries criminalizing this type of agreement. However there is also wide debate on the questions of monopolization and abuse of dominant position, vividly highlighted by the recent Microsoft case. Furthermore, there are today diverging views on the interplay of business strategies and the control of market power on both a national and international scale. The book discusses the perennial issue in Europe of the conflicts between competition and industrial policies, once again bringing the theme of national champions to the fore. The contributing authors provide opinion on the efforts which have been made towards modernization in both the USA and the EU.
