Some Critical Provisions in the Antimonopoly Laws of Central and Eastern Europe
AbstractAntimonopoly laws must contain effective provisions for the attack of exclusionary behavior by firms with market power while at the same time not attacking procompetitive behavior by entrants or incumbents. This paper suggests seven textual criteria by which a new law may be evaluated in its performance of these two functions, and applies these criteria to the antimonopoly laws of Czechoslovakia, Hungary, Poland, and the Russian Federation.
