The Global Limits of Competition Law

Daniel Sokol, Ioannis Lianos

Over the last three decades, the field of antitrust law has grown increasingly prominent, and more than one hundred countries have enacted competition law statutes. As competition law expands to jurisdictions with very different economic, social, cultural, and institutional backgrounds, the debates over its usefulness have similarly evolved.

This book, the first in a new series on global competition law, critically assesses the importance of competition law, its development and modern practice, and the global limits that have emerged. This volume will be a key resource to both scholars and practitioners interested in antitrust, competition law, economics, business strategy, and administrative sciences.

"Lianos and Sokol’s The Limits of Antitrust takes as its intellectual impetus the anniversary of the publication of Easterbrook’s seminal article (1984), which pointed to the limits of US antitrust (competition) law . . . The edited collection explores where limits now lie in the subdiscipline, ranging well beyond current issues in law and economics thinking in US antitrust law to broader themes." —Imelda Maher, Law & Social Inquiry

"Overall, this book is an enjoyable and enriching read for those academics who have a broad interest in the limits of competition law and, in a more general sense, in its development. Institutionalists, economists, cultural anthropologists and lawyers, as well as the general interested reader, will find something to appeal to them in this book, which presents a critical approach to competition law in terms of its scope, consistency and legitimacy." —Valerie Demedts, European Institute (Jean Monnet Centre of Excellence), Ghent University
