Watch Live: The Impact of Interchange Fee Regulation on European Payment Cards
Posted by D. Daniel Sokol
In the CPI Spring 2011 Journal, we presented an article by Jean Tirole on Payment Card Regulation and the Use of Economic Analysis in Antitrust. This article highlights the importance of antitrust regulation and analysis in what Jean describes as an ubiquitous area of our modern economy-debit and credit cards. In particular, the field of interchange fees has been the object of much controversy and the theoretical underpinnings of its regulation are still debated.
In light of the importance of this topic to the competition policy community, CPI, in concert with PYMNTS.com, is hosting a symposium on 15 June in Brussels where leading economists and current and former officials will discuss a broad range of topics related to interchange fees. The symposium will be streamed live, online, allowing you to follow the day's events from anywhere in the world. The live streaming is available without charge; we hope you'll be able to join us.
