Competition law is rooted in economic theory, and economics provides many of the standard tools often applied in competition investigations. As a result, a strong foundation in economics is an invaluable asset for practitioners in this area of law. This is the new edition of the popular and well-regarded practitioner guide to the economic principles of competition law.
