After insisting on, in its introduction, the increasing role of Economics in EU Competition Policy, the first chapters of the book of Hila Nevo are focusing on the concept of Market Power and on the Market Definition exercise, before reviewing the main Quantitative Techniques of Analysis (Schock Analysis, Similarity of Price Level, Price Correlation Analysis, Trade Flows, Demand Analysis, Critical Loss Analysis, etc.) and some leading cases (from United Brands to Blackstone/Acetex). In conclusion the author is trying to answer to two key questions : Is the European Commission’s Practice Sufficiently Guided by Sound Economic Theory ? Do Decisions in Real-Life Cases under European Competition Law Utilise all relevant Empirical Measures ?
