Multinational Antitrust: Lessons from the U.S. Experience

The globalization of business has resulted in a host of new issues facing antitrust regulators. As they rush to meet the challenges presented by the vastly greater volume of international business transactions, the increasing consolidation of global business operations, and the rapid evolution of computing and communications networks, the regulators leave in their wake an increasingly onerous burden on businesses engaged in international commerce. There is little guidance available, however, to the antitrust neophyte who wants to become familiar with these developments. They, as well as legal and economic scholars, lawyers, and others already steeped in antitrust law – or as it is known outside the United States, competition policy – will find Ky P. Ewing’s Competition Rules for the 21st Century: Principles from America’s Experience to be of great help.
