Edward Elgar,
Pub. Date:
One of the more contentious topics in the development of the European economic community has been that of competition. Here Davies and Lyons(both economics, U. of East Anglia) examine what happens when proposed mergers get past the European Commission (most actually do). Working from data on remedied mergers covering 21 markets along with an array of other sources, along with a simulation technique, Davies and Lyons appraise the competitive affects of these and other mergers and the impact of potential and actual remedies. The result is comprises both a simple market share analysis and remedy design. They explain the basics of mergers and remedies in the EU, classify merger remedies and review the literature, give extensive examples from the paper and pharmaceutical industries, and make recommendations for improvement. Their references serve well as a list of further reading. Annotation ©2008 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
