Abstract

Modern economies predominantly rely on the working of markets. To ensure that markets are a level playing field for economic agents, competition policies are usually included in the legal framework that regulates economic activities. Portugal is no exception to this rule. This paper reviews the legal aspects of Portuguese competition policy from an economist's point of view, its economic implications and gives a brief account of past experience.
