The Law and Economics of Article 102 TFEU

Second Edition

By Robert O'Donoghue, Jorge Padilla

This second edition is a comprehensive, integrated treatment of the legal and economic principles that underpin the application of Article 102 of the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union (TFEU) to the behavior of dominant firms. Traditional concerns of monopoly behavior - such as predatory pricing, refusals to deal, excessive pricing, tying and bundling, discount practices, and unlawful discrimination - are treated in detail through a review of the applicable economic principles, the case law and decisional practice, and more recent economic and legal writings. In addition, the major constituent elements of Article 102 TFEU - such as market definition, dominance, effect on trade, and applicable remedies - are considered at length. Jointly authored by a lawyer and an economist, The Law and Economics of Article 102 TFEU contains an integrated approach to the legal and economic principles that frame policy in this major area of competition law. Although written primarily with practitioners and in-house lawyers in mind, it is essential reading for anyone with an interest in competition law enforcement against monopoly behavior.
