Heard through the Grapevine
Down here in Brussels, there is rising speculation over who will step-in to replace Kai Uwe Kühn when his term arrives.
Rumour has it that Massimo Motta is a very strong (Universitat Pompeu Fabra and Barcelona Graduate School of Economics) contender for a place in the seat of DG COMP’s Chief Economist.
Would be a very good decision. For long, I am a great fan of Massimo Motta’s book entitled Competition Policy – Theory and Practice.
Amongst others, his innovative paper on the effect of antitrust fines on share valuation is also a must read.
