Competition policy from a European perspective: A conversation with EU Commissioner for Competition Margrethe Vestager


There is broad global agreement on basic principles of competition policy: Firms with market power should not engage in conduct that mainly harms competition; mergers should not lead to monopoly; government subsidies should not favor some competitors over others. But important debates remain. How much weight should be given to keeping prices low versus creating incentives for investment and innovation? Should antitrust seek to protect competitors or competition?

On September 18, European Commissioner for Competition Margrethe Vestager will visit AEI to discuss the EU perspective on these and other important issues in competition policy. A Q&A session with Commissioner Vestager will follow.

Join the conversation on social media by following @AEI and @AEIecon on Twitter and Facebook.
