Gual, Jordi; Hellwig, Martin F.; Perrot, Anne; Polo, Michele; Rey, Patrick; Schmidt, Klaus M. ORCID: 0000-0002-5011-0828; Stenbacka, Rune (July 2005): An Economic Approach to Article 82. Report by the European Advisory Group on Competition Policy. Discussion Papers in Economics 2005-26

This is the latest version of this item.



This report argues in favour of an economics-based approach to Article 82, in a way similar to the reform of Article 81 and merger control. In particular, we support an effects-based rather than a form-based approach to competition policy. Such an approach focuses on the presence of anti-competitive effects that harm consumers, and is based on the examination of each specific case, based on sound economics and grounded on facts.
