Comments on Switgard Feuerstein's “Collusion in Industrial Economics—A Survey”


  • K. Mehta



These comments elaborate on the policy implications of theoretical models and compare them with competition law and practice. In regard to EU merger control it is discussed how case law has dealt with the creation of market structures that would maintain collusion. With respect to leniency programmes the deterrence and desistment incentives of actually implemented programmes are compared with theoretical results. Certain areas of research of particular relevance for enforcement are indicated in the conclusions. Copyright Springer Science + Business Media, Inc. 2005
