Plenary Session

Antitrust Enforcement, Industrial Concentration and Political Power

Thursday 28th September h. 14:00 – 15.00 (CET)
Managed by
Eversheds Sutherland

In recent years, there has been growing concern that industrial concentration affects consumers not only directly through market power, but also indirectly through politics. In this session, two prominent economists will discuss whether and how market power can lead to political power, the implications for the democratic process in the economy, and how antitrust policy should address this issue.
