This challenging book offers a comprehensive and critical appraisal of the profound transformation of competition law during the last three decades in the United States and in Europe. By placing economic efficiency at the centre stage, economic thinking has greatly contributed to this change of ''paradigm'' and plays now an important role in the formulation of legal norms. However, this important evolution still raises the issue of the extent to which economics should be adopted in defining the public interest in competition policy.
This timely study examines the role economists should play in legal argument by focusing on the differences that still exist in the application of competition law on vertical restraints (vertical agreements, distribution strategies of dominant firms, vertical mergers) in the United States and in Europe (EC, French and UK competition law). The author defends a pragmatic and original approach in the interaction between law and economics in competition policy thus making this volume a marker for future policy debate.
