Competition and the State

D. Daniel Sokol, Thomas K. Cheng, and Ioannis Lianos


This book is an attempt to take stock of and analyze the multifaceted role of the state and its impact on competition law and policy. The chapters address various aspects of the tensions and complexities involved in competition and the role of the state. Although the book offers different normative approaches, economic analysis remains a unifying theme to the book. How economic analysis may be used in competition law and policy creates potential problems with other parts of regulation.

Keywords: regulation, antitrust, competition law, competition policy, government
