Why join Winter School?
Economics actuates Competition Law and Regulatory Scenario:
Markets are becoming increasingly global and the approaches to regulate them are more economics based. Modern competition law differs from traditional competition law in that it now reflects the dominance of the economic model of analysing the market structures and behaviour. Competition Economics assumes importance as regulatory and competition authorities have moved to adopt more economics based approaches in analysing business practices and determining anti-competitive behaviour. Even the current policy formulation and consultation takes in to account market dynamics and thus critical to understand these nuances to help better understand the broader picture.
Competition law and policy is sector neutral and thus a better understanding of competition economics equips participants with tools to analyse interplay between complex issues related to competition in all the sectors of economy.
