Challenges to Antitrust in a Changing Economy
ABOUT THE CONFERENCE
This inaugural conference, co-organized by Competition Policy International (CPI) and Computer & Communications Industry Association (CCIA), aimed to generate an open and cutting-edge debate on competition law and economics in the tech industry.
The last decade has seen a growing thirst for innovation in many industries worldwide. Innovation certainly makes economies more dynamic and competitive, but it can pose challenges for legislative and regulatory bodies trying to keep pace with rapidly evolving businesses.
This conference addressed key issues affecting the tech industry in the climate of constant changes. Measuring market concentration, the consumer welfare standard, competition on/via the internet, is monopoly power rising?, were some of the topics that were discussed by leading antitrust academics, enforcers, and private practitioners.
