Services of General Economic Interest and Competition under European Law—A Delicate Balance

Posted by D. Daniel Sokol

Luc Gyselen (Arnold & Porter) writes on Services of General Economic Interest and Competition under European Law—A Delicate Balance.

ABSTRACT: Competition is often described as a mechanism allowing consumers to access better products or services at lower prices. That result would be obtained through the rivalry process compelling firms to improve their offers in a hope of being selected, rather than rejected, by consumers. In this contribution, the author examines to what extent that presentation applies to firms providing services considered of to be of a general interest.
