The Rise of Economics in Competition Policy:: A Canadian Perspective

Marcel Boyer (), Thomas Ross and Ralph Winter ()

No 17-869, TSE Working Papers from Toulouse School of Economics (TSE)

Abstract: Competition policy in Canada and elsewhere has changed remarkably over the last fifty years – in large measure due to advances in economics. In this article we trace the impact of developments in industrial organization on the three central areas of competition policy: cartels, single firm conduct and mergers. We focus on Canadian competition policy, but draw comparisons with developments in the United States and Europe.
