Niamh Dunne undertakes a systematic exploration of the relationship between competition law and economic regulation as legal mechanisms of market control. Beginning from a theoretical assessment of these legal instruments as discrete mechanisms, the author goes on to address numerous facets of the substantive interrelationship between competition law and economic regulation. She considers, amongst other aspects, the concept of regulatory competition law; deregulation, liberalisation and 'regulation for competition'; the concurrent application of competition law in regulated markets; and relevant institutional aspects including market study procedures, the distribution of enforcement powers between competition agencies and sector regulators, and certain legal powers that demonstrate a 'hybridised' quality lying between competition law and economic regulation. Throughout her assessment, Dunne identifies and explores recurrent considerations that inform and shape the optimal relationship between these legal mechanisms within any jurisdiction.

Verpflichtungszusagen im EU-Wettbewerbsrecht

Eine Untersuchung der Funktionen und Grenzen von Verpflichtungsbeschlüssen nach Art. 9 VO 1/2003 unter besonderer Berücksichtigung des Energiesektors

Im Zuge der 'Modernisierung' des Wettbewerbsverfahrensrechts der EU im Jahr 2004 wurde der Europäischen Kommission ein neues Instrument der Wettbewerbsrechtsdurchsetzung zur Verfügung gestellt. Nach Art. 9 VO 1/2003 kann sie Verpflichtungszusagen von Unternehmen für verbindlich erklären, die ihre wettbewerbsrechtlichen Bedenken ausräumen, ohne einen Rechtsverstoß festzustellen. Verpflichtungsbeschlüsse sind in der Verwaltungspraxis der Kommission inzwischen von herausragender Bedeutung. Mit ihnen ist die Hoffnung auf eine neue Form der Wettbewerbsrechtsdurchsetzung verbunden. Im Vordergrund stehen dabei die Verfahrensökonomie und die Effektivität der Wettbewerbsrechtsdurchsetzung. Auf der anderen Seite besteht die Sorge, dass die Rechtsbindung der Durchsetzung der Wettbewerbsregeln durch einen breiten Einsatz des Verpflichtungsverfahrens beeinträchtigt wird. Dieses Spannungsverhältnis untersucht die vorliegende Arbeit anhand der Beschlusspraxis der Kommission.

The fundamental goal of competition law is to support productivity and innovativeness; in fact, the short-term effect of enforcement actions is often a reduction in product prices. This book reports the findings of consumer market studies into a range of goods and services in developing countries in Africa, Asia and Latin America. It finds a pervasive lack of competition in those markets, which not only reduces the standard of living of consumers, including poor and vulnerable groups, but also softens the incentives on firms to improve the efficiency of their operations and the quality of their products

Latin American Competition Law and Policy:A Policy in Search of Identity

Thanks to the strategy of `apertura' that has characterized economic policy throughout Latin America since the debt crisis, foreign investment is on the rise and a significant degree of economic stability has been achieved. In the global arena, however, the enormous promise of Latin American trade remains only partially realized, as policy makers in the region struggle to design a `fair' level playing field for encouraging sustained and equitable development, through implementing transparent regulatory business environments across the region. Competition policy has accordingly become a major regulatory issue in both individual Latin American countries and in regional cooperation arrangements. In considering the development of the 'second generation' of regulatory policy initiatives implemented in the region, this important book analyzes the role of competition policy in the promotion of successful and sustained economic development. Examples of the vital and diverse aspects of the region's competition policy agenda covered are: comparative assessments of the legal regime of different Latin American countries for dealing with business restrictive practices, including cartels, vertical restraints, market foreclosures and mergers the increasing introduction of competition principles in the promotion of institutional reforms in the promotion of investments and technology, privatization processes, antidumping policy and trade remedies, and the regulation of public utilities the institutional factors influencing the relationship between competition authorities and other regulatory agencie The author combines the legal description of the jurisdictions reviewed with the analytical tools of institutional economics, to give a fully rounded picture of this complex and evolving subject.

Private Management and Public Policy

The Principle of Public Responsibility

Author: James Post,Lee E. Preston

Publisher: Stanford University Press

Category: Business & Economics

View: 4957

Private Management and Public Policy is a landmark work at the intersection of business and society. First published in 1975, it focuses on the management processes that companies use to respond to social issues. The text develops the "principle of public responsibility" as an alternative to the notion that firms have unlimited accountability. And, it presents one of the first systems-based approaches to corporate responsibility, providing theoretical support for business involvement in public policy. Arguably, the book's major contribution is its broad outline of an alternative theory of the firm in society—one that offers the possibility of overcoming traditional public and private dichotomies.

Vom Versagen der Märkte zur Neuordnung der Weltwirtschaft

Das Plädoyer des Nobelpreisträgers für eine neue globale Wirtschaftspolitik Der freie Fall der Weltwirtschaft begann im Herbst 2008 mit dem Zusammenbruch der Investment-Bank Lehman Brothers. Die Finanz- und Wirtschaftskrise, die wir seither erleben, ist die schlimmste seit den 1930er Jahren. In seinem neuen Buch fragt Wirtschaftsnobelpreisträger Joseph Stiglitz, wie es dazu kommen konnte – und erklärt, wie wir solche Katastrophen in Zukunft verhindern können. Mit der Wirtschaftskrise hat sich die jahrzehntelang herrschende Wirtschaftsdoktrin selbst entzaubert: Falsche Anreize, entfesselte Märkte und eine ungerechte Verteilung des Reichtums haben die Welt an den Rand des Abgrunds geführt. Für Joseph Stiglitz ist klar: Ein »Weiter so« kann es nicht geben. Statt mit hektischen Rettungsmaßnahmen die eigene, nationale Wirtschaft zu retten und danach wieder zur Tagesordnung überzugehen, müssen wir diesen kritischen Moment nutzen, um eine neue globale Wirtschafts- und Finanzpolitik zu schaffen. Joseph Stiglitz beschreibt in seinem neuen Buch, wie solch eine krisenfeste und gerechtere Wirtschaftsordnung aussehen könnte. Neben einer besseren Regulierung der Finanzmärkte und einer aktiveren Rolle des Staates in der Wirtschaft, müssen wir vor allem dafür Sorge tragen, weltweit Arbeitsplätze zu sichern und den Wohlstand gerechter zu verteilen.

Why isn't society doing better economically, socially and environmentally? Why have the advances in science and technology not led to more wealth, well-being and a brighter outlook for humanity? This book argues part of the blame lies with the theory and practice of economics. Standard economics is based on poorly conceived premises and method, resulting in misguided policy prescriptions. These helped cause the 2007 crisis, inhibit economic recovery, foster future crises, and restrain society in addressing its social and environmental problems. The book shows that what is considered responsible economic, financial and fiscal policy puts society in an economic straightjacket that prevents the full development of its productive potential. It presents the outline of a new economics, a social science that can help generate the productive potential to create a dynamic, socially equitable and environmentally sustainable society.

Long hours, low wages, and unsafe workplaces characterized sweatshops a hundred years ago. These same conditions plague American trucking today. Sweatshops on Wheels: Winners and Losers in Trucking Deregulation exposes the dark side of government deregulation in America's interstate trucking industry. In the years since deregulation in 1980, median earnings have dropped 30% and most long-haul truckers earn less than half of pre-regulation wages. Work weeks average more than sixty hours. Today, America's long-haul truckers are working harder and earning less than at any time during the last four decades. Written by a former long-haul trucker who now teaches industrial relations at Wayne State University, Sweatshops on Wheels raises crucial questions about the legacy of trucking deregulation in America and casts provocative new light on the issue of government deregulation in general.
