Summer 2012, Volume 8 Number 1

In this issue:

It's far cheaper not to commit the crime then commit it and get caught. So it's no surprise that the savvier competition authorities spend time and resources on outreach and advocacy. Given a myriad of audiences, however, it's not easy. There are the obvious public and corporate constituencies, but fellow government agencies are just as important. During this month, we'll be publishing papers from a variety of authorities describing various ways to educate a diverse audience that may not even understand what "competition policy" is. And many thanks to Danny Sokol for his help designing these issues.
