Appendix 1: Foreign Monopoly and Merger Law

This Appendix consists of brief descriptions of the monopoly and merger laws of several nations. These descriptions are not intended to provide a complete statement of any one nation’s antitrust statutes and case law. Rather, they are included in this volume to permit the reader to observe the widely divergent approaches to the regulation of economic concentration. These summaries may not contain the latest case law developments or statutory amendments. It is hoped, however, that they provide a sound starting point for investigation of the regulatory regimes of the nations included in this collection.
