The Flour Cartel- A provocation?

with 3 comments

Apparently someone at the French Competition Authority liked the series on the endives cartel (see here and here):

The Autorité de la Concurrence has imposed a fine of 242.4 million euros on flour makers.

Isn’t it obvious that this is a poor attempt to provoke us to write a new -and more appetizing- series on croissants?

Nice try, but they’ll have to do butter.

  3. Alfonso, I’m really enjoying all your work on this website. Your posts are never less than informative, and at their best are funny AND interesting. I write for a financial mag and we’re looking to make a move into covering business law and legal news (antitrust is a natural, and fecund, topic for us to investigate). If you fancy having some of your work featured, drop me an email, or follow me on Twitter (@WilliamHenryWF).

    Cheers,

    Will
