Competition Policy in the EU

Massimo Motta

Oxford University Press

This chapter first analyses the economics of collusion, explaining what collusion is, what its main ingredients are, and which factors facilitate it. It then reviews the European Union's experience in fighting cartels, by focusing on the standards of proving infringements and on the European Commission's enforcement policy. It argues that to a large extent EU cartel policy is now broadly in line with economic thinking.

Keywords:   collusion, cartels, EU competition law, infringements, enforcement policy
