ESRC Centre for Competition Policy 10th Annual Conference: PROBLEM MARKETS June 12 - 13, 2014

ESRC Centre for Competition Policy
10th Annual Conference
PROBLEM MARKETS
June 12 - 13, 2014

Sometimes markets appear not to be working for the consumer and can seem a bit ‘too hot’ for regulators to handle, with nobody quite sure why or what should be done about it. Often it is not clear if illegal activity is taking place and these ‘problem markets’ attract widespread attention amongst the public, politicians, academics and the media.
 
With a range of leading international academics and speakers from the competition agencies, Which? and Ofcom, the conference will explore the issues surrounding ‘problem markets’, examining possible root causes as well as the potential for intervention to improve matters.
TOPICS INCLUDE
