Oliver Budzinski, Ilmenau University of Technology; University of Southern Denmark – Department of Environmental and Business Economics and Maryam H. A. Beigi, Ilmenau University of Technology offer Competition Policy Agendas for Industrializing Countries

ABSTRACT: The paper suggest a competition policy agenda strategy for industrializing countries, i.e. countries that do not have fully established market economies yet but already have progressed some way on the road to industrialization. It especially emphasizes that some features of advanced competition policy regimes, like the EU or U.S., are not suitable for such countries and different priorities need to be set. The paper concludes that in terms of antitrust, one size does not necessarily fit all.
