Comparative Antitrust Federalism: Review of Cengiz, Antitrust Federalism in the EU and the US

Posted by D. Daniel Sokol

Herb Hovenkamp (Iowa) offers a review of Comparative Antitrust Federalism: Review of Cengiz, Antitrust Federalism in the EU and the US.

ABSTRACT: This brief essay reviews Firat Cengiz’s book “Federalism in the EU and the US” (2012), which compares the role of federalism in the competition law of the European Union and the United States. Both of these systems are “federal,” of course, because both have individual nation-states (Europe) or states (US) with their own individual competition provisions, but also an overarching competition law that applies to the entire group. This requires a certain amount of cooperation with respect to both territorial reach and substantive coverage.
