Adrian will give the second seminar in the series “Competition Policy in Practice” on Thursday. The abstract appears below. Students, researchers, faculty and practitioners are all welcome to this event.
Coordinated effects and the Anglo American / Lafarge JV: cementing good practice or throwing theory in the mixer?
This presentation focuses on the Anglo American / Lafarge JV, cleared conditionally by the UK Competition Commission. This recent decision has the first substantial lessening of competition (SLC) finding based only on coordinated effects (in relation to cement). We shall assess the approach taken by the Competition Commission and the implications for the future analysis of coordinated effects in the UK.
