Concurrence et Politique Industrielle: Analyse de Logiques Distinctes (Competition Policy and Industrial Policy: 'East is East, and West is West, and Never the Twain Shall Meet?')

Posted by D. Daniel Sokol

Fred Marty, Research Group on Law, Economics and Management offers his insights on Concurrence et Politique Industrielle: Analyse de Logiques Distinctes (Competition Policy and Industrial Policy: 'East is East, and West is West, and Never the Twain Shall Meet?').

ABSTRACT: French political debates on offshorings and the defense of national champions were a prelude to a "Great Fear" of deindustrialization. They spotlight the possible conflicts between competition and industrial policies. European competition law rules are often denunciated as obstructing the implementation of a national industrial policy. Our purpose in this paper is to analyze the links between these two public policies and to assess to what extent competition rules might preclude the implementation of such a policy. We underline that an implicit industrial policy might take shape through the enforcement of competition rules by the European Commission.
