Competition in a digital economy is a new frontier
Join Caron Beaton-Wells, Professor in Competition Law at the University of Melbourne, to tackle what it means to participate as a competitor, consumer or citizen in a digital economy and society.
Featuring regular cut-through interviews with leading thinkers, movers and shakers, Competition Lore is a podcast series that engages us all in a debate about the transformative potential and risks of digitalised competition.
About Caron Beaton-Wells
I’m a Professor specialising in competition law at the University of Melbourne Law School, Director of the University’s Competition Law & Economics Network and Global Competition and Consumer Law program.
Over 15 years steeped in researching and teaching in competition law, I’ve become increasingly concerned by the exclusion or marginalisation of academic contributions in important public debates.
On average an academic journal article is “read completely by no more than ten people”.
With Competition Lore, one of my aims is to entice academics out of the ivory tower and into the public discourse to engage as broadly as possible on a set of issues that pose opportunities and challenges for us all.
