Abstract

Commentators tend to assume that competition law convergence between the United States and the European Union is both attainable and desirable. This article explores whether that assumption is valid, and what it would entail. The conclusion is that in some areas competition law reflects deeper social differences between societies and that competition law convergence is not only unrealistic, it may even be undesirable.
