Relaxing whilst doing Competition Law is not an Oxymoron

Antitrust Writing Awards- The campaign begins

with one comment

(Since this post is about awards, we thought a pic form last night’s grammys ceremony would be appropriate. I randomly came accross this one, but it risked being inappropriate, so we’ve decided to go for a more politically correct one).

You may remember that last year we ran a campaign (see here) for Nicolas to win one of Concurrence’s Antitrust Writing Awards, which he did for his paper on Credit Rating Agencies.

This year the Editorial Committee at Concurrences has shortlisted 3 pieces written by people who have contributed to this blog, so we thought we’d ask you to please take a minute to give them your 5-star vote 😉

The nominees are:

– On the category for Academic paper on Anticompetitive Practices: Pablo Ibañez Colomo (LSE), for Market Failures, Transaction Costs and Article 101(1) TFEU Case Law,  You can read it and vote for it at:  http://awards.concurrences.com/academic-articles-awards/article/market-failures-transaction-costs  By the way, Pablo gave a lecture on this topic at the IEB in Madrid a few days ago; the slides are available here: Making sense of Article 101 TFEU

– On the category for Academic papers on Economics: Hans Zenger (CRA) for Loyalty Rebates and the Competitive Process : You can read it and vote for it athttp://awards.concurrences.com/academic-articles-awards/article/loyalty-rebates-and-the

– On the category for Business papers on Economics, myself, for Economics in competition lawYou can read it and vote for it at (no need to read this one,  you can skip it provided that you vote for it): http://awards.concurrences.com/business-articles-awards/article/economics-in-competition-law  (actually, the nominated post does not rank among the ones I’m proudest of, but I’m nevertheless grateful for the nomination).

– We are told that Chillin’Competition has also been shortlisted as one of the top 30 professional publications that will be reviewed by Concurrence’s editorial board, which will then come up with a ranking (for more info, click here). You cannot vote for us here, but we’d be thankful if you could please exert any sort of coercion on the jury
