European Competition Law and Economics: Cartels and Other Evils

This course deals with the effects of European Competition Law on the behavior of businesses in the European Union (EU). An effective common market within the EU requires a fair and undistorted competition. Hence the European Commission (EC) vigorously attacks cartels and abuses of power by monopolists. A recent example of a Cartel is the ‘cooperation’ between 7 seven international banks – Barclays, RBS, Citigroup, JPMorgan, and MUFG by participating in a foreign exchange spot trading cartel. In this case the European Commission imposed a total fine of € 1.07 billion in 2019.
