Abstract

The Antitrust Marathons explore enduring issues of competition and consumer policy on a comparative basis through roundtable discussions of senior officials, practitioners, and academics in more depth than is possible in traditional conference format. Each Antitrust Marathon includes special issue papers and the edited transcript of the roundtable discussion. Antitrust Marathon IV held in Dublin, Ireland in October 2009 focused on how to integrate competition and consumer regulation and enforcement; concurrent regulation between competition authorities and sectoral regulations; competition policy and financial regulation in light of the global financial crisis; and institutional design questions of judicial, administrative, and mixed model for competition policy.

Keywords: antitrust, competition law, competition, consumer protection, behavioral economics, concurrent regulation, regulation, financial services, financial regulation, financial crisis, institutional design, adjudication, sectoral regulation, OFT, FTC, Antitrust Division, European Union, standard of review
