- Publisher's Summary
- 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. The book brings together contributions on the relevance of different welfare standards, on the concept of 'freedom to compete' and on distributional fairness as a goal of competition law. Moreover, it discusses the relationship to other legal goals such as market integration. Finally, the specific issue of competition law goals in emerging economies is addressed. The Goals of Competition Law will have strong appeal to academics in competition law and competition economics; policy-makers, enforcers and other practitioners in the field of competition law; postgraduate students in competition law and competition economics.
