Frédéric Marty (CNRS UMR 6227 GREDEG - Université de Nice Sophia-Antipolis) addresses European competition policy and social market economy.
ABSTRACT: The paper deals first with the influence of ordo-liberal school of thought on the German competition policy conception and the model of social market economy. After showing to what extend the Freiburg School influence shaped the German economic policy, we analyze what was its influence on the framing of the European competition policy. We show that this one was in fact achieved thought the Court of Justice case law. In this perspective, we assess to what extend a convergence toward a more economic approach in the implementation of Article 102TFEU, is susceptible to impact EU competition authorities decisional practice.
