Antitrust New Frontiers
The rise of the digital (“new”) economy has created new challenges for antitrust enforcement. It has considerably improved the ability of businesses to utilize efficiencies, disrupted markets, accelerated globalization, and changed the demand for skills in labor markets. It has also empowered populist ideas that are not always informed or practical. Economies across the world have witnessed dramatic increases in market concentration, displacement of small and large businesses, rising economic disparities, and growing pressures to revisit competition policies. Antitrust New Frontiers convenes some of the world’s leading antitrust thinkers, who have served in senior positions in the public and private sectors, as well as academia, to discuss contemporary antitrust themes, focusing on economic concentration and the transformation of markets.
