John M. Connor, Purdue University; American Antitrust Institute (AAI) describes Canada's International Cartel Enforcement: Keeping Score.
ABSTRACT: Canada’s Competition Bureau has been a highly rated competition-law enforcer. Previously published assessments of its anti-cartel efforts tend to heap praise on the authority. Yet its antitrust performance in the past decade or so has flagged. A quantitative assessment of several dimensions of outcomes made of the Bureau’s anti-cartel enforcement activities shows an agency unable to live up to its earlier promise.
