Abstract

The Directorate General for Competition at the European Commission enforces competition law in the areas of antitrust, merger control, and state aids. In this year’s review of the recent economic work undertaken at DG Competition we focus on a theme in each of these three areas. For merger control, we review the application of both the theoretical analysis and the empirical techniques to bidding competition in the GE/Alstom case. In terms of antitrust enforcement, we review the economic issues that were raised by an Article 101 decision with respect to information exchange in the market for container shipping. Finally, with respect to state aid we provide an overview of the sector inquiry in electricity markets that targeted capacity mechanisms, as means to ensure security of supply in the European Union.
