In the past due 19th century, liberals exulted that the unfold of foreign trade may bring in prosperity and peace.

Sample text

Horizontal mergers involve firms that are actual or potential competitors, while vertical mergers involve firms at different levels in the chain of production (World Bank-OECD, 1999, p. 42). Mergers change market structure by reducing the number of independent firms in the market. They also result in the merged entity having a larger market share than each of the two merging firms before the merger. Thus some mergers can result in a dominant firm (where none existed before the merger) or/and it can increase the merged entity’s market power.

As Andersen (2004) suggests, the Price equation ‘eats its own tail’, an attribute of considerable significance in the analysis of multilevel evolutionary processes. It means that we can decompose population change into change between any number of sub-populations and change within sub-populations in an identical fashion, so that at each level of aggregation we can reflect the forces of adaptation whether through selection or innovation. The force of this approach can be simply summarized. Though selection is only one level of explanation for population change, it cannot be separated from innovation.

By contrast an innovationbased economy, in which new knowledge is continually generated and applied, will be competitive. It will be characterized by ongoing structural and qualitative change, by selection, by entry and exit so that the economy continually becomes a new economy. In this process, competition policy is far broader and more significant than is encompassed by the notion of antitrust. It covers the regulation of the market process, the determination of the scope of markets and the rules of the game within them, together with the openness of markets.
