Behavioural Economics in Competition Inquiries - Nudged into Reality

Competition Law Forum

23rd September 2013

Proponents and opponents of behavioural economics are polarised. However, we are past this debate. Behavioural economics is already common in competition inquiries by the FCA, OFT and CC.

Put aside any preconceived views in 'system 1' of your brain, and join us in a rational 'system 2' discussion about what behavioural economics really means for competition policy in practice.

Hear about Oxera's study for the Netherlands Authority for Consumers and Markets, and the FCA's recent studies and inquiries in this area.

This event will be followed by a reception.
