Summer 2012, Volume 8 Number 2

In this issue:

During this month, we've been publishing papers from competition authorities describing ways to educate an audience that may not even understand what "competition policy" is. Part of the surprise has been the actual diversity of those audiences - not just the public, but fellow agencies, judges, and even other authorities. And as the Brazilians and Mexicans have discovered, it's doubly hard when there's been a revision of the laws. In part 2 of this series, we present interesting case studies from Brazil and Mexico, as well as reports from Singapore, South Africa, Japan, and the ICN.  (Check out Part 1 for reports from the FTC, Chile, Sweden, and Taiwan.) And many thanks to Danny Sokol for his help designing these issues.
