When Economics met Antitrust : document de travail du GREDEG

Mise en ligne d'un nouveau document de travail du GREDEG cosigné avec Patrice Bougette et Marc Deschamps.

Ce dernier porte sur l'économicisation du droit de la concurrence américain (en regard de l'approche par les effets préconisée en droit européen) et met un accent particulier sur l'influence de la seconde école de Chicago.

Comme son appellation l'indique ce document est un "work in progress" et va très prochainement être modifié.

In this article,we use a history of economic thought perspective to analyze the process by which the Chicago School of Antitrust emerged in the 1950s and became dominant in the US. We show the extent to which economic objectives and theoretical views shaped antitrust laws in their inception. After establishing the minor influence of economics in the promulgation of US competition laws, we then highlight US economists’ very cautious views about antitrust until the Second New Deal. We analyze the process by which the Chicago School developed a general and coherent framework for competition policy. We rely mainly on the seminal and programmatic work of Director and Levi (1956) and trace how this theoretical paradigm was made collective, i.e. the “economization” process took place in US antitrust. Finally, we discuss the implications, if not the possible pitfalls, of such a conversion to economics - led competition law enforcement.

IPPP - Risks and Opportunities : an economic perspective (in EPPPL 2/2014)

Just published in EPPPL (European Procurement and Public Private Partnership Law Review) the paper written with Julie de Brux (Chaire EPPP - Sorbonne Business School / Vinci Concessions) on Institutionalised Public-Private Partnerships

http://www.lexxion.de/en/verlagsprogramm-shop/details/4561/387/epppl/epppl-2/2014/ippp--risks-and-opportunities,-an-economic-perspective

Our article analyzes some of the issues raised by institutionalized public-private partnerships in an economic perspective. We demonstrate that although they may address some of the main limits of purely contractual public-private partnerships, such as the issues of control, know-how transfer, or additional financial cost, they may induce some intrinsic risks, related to alterations of the contractual incentive structure and judicial challenges. Based on economic theory, we stem some recommendations and comments about the adequacy of legal requirements with economic normative views.
