About the Speech:
Barry C. Lynn's groundbreaking writings on industrial interdependence among nations and the growing fragility of global supply systems have attracted wide attention, while his research on the political and economic effects of the extreme consolidation of power in American and European economies has influenced the thinking of policymakers and antitrust/competition professionals on both sides of the Atlantic. His presentation focuses on the threats posed by the 'new monopolies' and how competition policy must be adapted to deal with them.
Praise for Barry C. Lynn's Cornered:
"This book should be read by the Minister for Enterprise and Employment, and by the EU Competition Commissioner, so that they can draw up new and transparent guidelines for competition policy that will ensure no entity is ever again allowed to become too big to fail, that free enterprise means free entry to all markets, and cosy cartels become a thing of the past."
