Economic Theory and Competition Law

ASCOLA Competition Law series

Edited by Josef Drexl, Director, Max Planck Institute for Innovation and Competition, Munich, Germany, Laurence Idot, Professor of Law, University of Paris II Panthéon-Assas and Joël Monéger, Professor of Law, University of Paris Dauphine, France

The context for this book is the increasingly complex relationship between economic theory and competition law which gives rise to lively political and academic debate on the direction competition law should take in a more global and innovation-oriented market place.

‘Economic Theory and Competition Law constitutes a timely, stimulating contribution to the ongoing debate on the current trends of competition enforcement, not only in Europe but also in other jurisdictions, and especially on the impact that applying the concepts and the categories of economic theory is going to have on this activity. . . Due to its coverage and timeliness, it is very likely to have a considerable impact on the current discussion and also to be of interest to both academics and practitioners active in the field of competition law and policy.’
– Arianna Andreangeli, Common Market Law Review
