"Merger control on both sides of the Atlantic has been subject to an extensive and rigorous modernisation during the last 10–15 years, injecting tools, theories and methods of modern industrial economic thinking into merger control policy. The goal of the “economics approach” to merger control was to enhance the welfare effects of merger policy by reducing false decisions by competition policy authorities."
"This paper contributes to explain the current enforcement problems of the economised merger control by pointing to a widely neglected perspective."
