Abstract:     
The advent of a more economic approach to EU competition law has spurred the most substantial debate on the normative justifications of competition law in recent history. Nevertheless, and despite a limited literature to the contrary, these are not times of fundamental debate concerning the ultimate aims of competition policy. This is evidenced by the limited practical importance of the normative foundations of competition law in the enforcement practice of competition authorities and even in policy debates.
