ESRC Centre for Competition Policy 10th Annual Conference 

PROBLEM MARKETS

June 12 - 13, 2014

The Drama Studio, University of East Anglia, Norwich
Sometimes markets appear not to be working for the consumer and can seem a bit ‘too hot’ for regulators to handle, with nobody quite sure why or what should be done about it. Often it is not clear if illegal activity is taking place and these ‘problem markets’ attract widespread attention amongst the public, politicians, academics and the media.
 
With a range of leading international academics and speakers from the competition agencies, Which? and Ofcom, the conference will explore the issues surrounding ‘problem markets’, examining possible root causes as well as the potential for intervention to improve matters.
TOPICS INCLUDE
What is a problem market? I Experience to date: UK & EU I Legal Framework I Competition & the demand side I Experience to date: US & Worldwide I Supply-side issues outside standard antitrust law I Identifying problem markets I Competition with divergent public policy concerns I
