Abuse of Market Power

Date: Tuesday 2 November 2004
Time: 6.00pm

Speaker: John Vickers
Chair: Professor Timothy Besley

How should competition law deal with anti-competitive behaviour by firms with market power?  Lax policy would jeopardise the competitiveness of markets, but rigid policy would chill pro-competitive, pro-consumer conduct.  The lecture will provide an economic discussion of evolving legal standards of what is abuse of market power.

John Vickers is chairman of the Office of Fair Trading.  He was previously chief economist at the Bank of England.

This event is free and open to all with no ticket required.  Entry is on a first come, first serve basis.
