Alexander Kurdin () and Anastasia Shastitko

Economic Policy, 2013, 91—111

Abstract: The article presents an empirical study of the use of economic analysis when considering antitrust cases in Russia. The use of economic analysis in antitrust proceedings has long been provided for orders of the Federal Antimonopoly Service of Russia. However, economic analysis, firstly, is not always necessary, and secondly, it is carried out with varying thoroughness and using different tools. The authors of the study sample study Russian antitrust proceedings for 2007-2011, using quantitative methods, and come to the conclusion that the economic analysis does not bring additional time costs, its application or contest can promote a favorable outcome for the Party, and the use of specific instruments depends on type of alleged violations of the law.
