The Goals of Competition Law

ASCOLA Competition Law series

Edited by Daniel Zimmer, Professor of Law, University of Bonn, Germany and Member of the German Monopolies Commission

What are the normative foundations of competition law? That is the question at the heart of this book. Leading scholars consider whether this branch of law serves just one or more than one goal, and, if it serves to protect unfettered competition as such, how this goal relates to other objectives such as the promotion of economic welfare.

‘. . . this book, with its economics-based approach and international orientation, will certainly interest academic lawyers, graduate students and indeed policy makers whose decisions may affect the economic welfare of whole regions. With detailed footnotes and index, the compilation is also especially useful as a gateway to further research.’
– Phillip Taylor MBE and Elizabeth Taylor, The Barrister Magazine
