DYNAMIC COMPETITION IN DYNAMIC MARKETS:
ABOUT THE CONFERENCE
This conference, Dynamic Competition in Dynamic Markets: A Path Forward, co-organized by Competition Policy International (CPI) and the Competition Law and Economics Network (CLEN) at the Melbourne Law School, aimed to generate a global perspective on a cutting-edge debate that first began in November 2018 at Harvard Law School. The focus of the conference was on the evolving global economy and the tech industry and its subsequent effects on competition law, policy, and economics.
The last decade has seen a growing need 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.
The conference was led off with an opening keynote address by Philip Marsden and featured a fireside chat with Rod Sims and Howard Shelanski. Panels throughout the day included topics such as: Digital Innovation and Competition Policy; Big Data: Understanding and Analyzing its Competitive Effects; and Designing Antitrust Regulatory Models in a Globalized Silicon Valley Culture.
