(p.7) 2 Comparative Competition Policy: Boundaries and Levels of Political Analysis
Comparative Competition Policy



Oxford University Press

This chapter focuses on competition policy and locates the study of competition policy within the broader terrain of comparative public policy studies. This is essential to understand not only the nature of evidence, but also the difficulty in mounting convincing efforts in comparative analysis in this policy field. Competition and competition policy are not the same thing. However, understanding the former is crucial, and it starts with economics and economists. Understanding the latter means one has to deal with politics. The chapter sketches key features of the basic analytical challenge in the comparative study of competition policy. It outlines the four levels of analysis needed for a full appreciation of the politics of competition policy: macro, mesco, micro, and international.

Keywords:   competition policy, comparative, institutions, macro, mesco, micro, international
