Paul Nihoul, Universite Catholique de Louvain asks Do Words Matter? A Discussion on Words Used to Designate Values Associated with Competition Law.
ABSTRACT: In scholarship, a significant degree of attention is paid to the goals or objectives to be pursued through antitrust or competition law.

In this paper, I shed some light on the communication used by authorities to describe their mission - and serve their agenda.
