Re-Opening Soon

with one comment

This blog is closed until next Monday.

As an “aperitif“, please find hereafter a link to a new working paper entitled “Credit Rating Agencies, the Sovereign Debt Crisis and Competition Law (42 p.).

Again, a piece of heretical thinking, written in the solitary quietness of the summer.

Actually, there were so few emails in the past weeks, I really felt like a hermit.

    Even it is not the case in E.U., and although we will have in the next years with our own credit rating agency, it could be a special kind of abuse, consisting in naked restrictions, similar to Intel case
    Kind regards.
