- "The ideas offered in this book are meant to serve as guidelines for discussions on reform. This book represents an attempt to work out conceptions for a better international competition order on the basis of a scientific approach based on 'law and economics'. It presents the dominant concepts of competition policy as a basis for an international competition order and tries to formulate a synthesis. The result is a new neo-ordoliberal approach. Anti-dumping measures are analysed in terms of their effects on international competition and resource allocation. Alternatives and improvements are suggested. From national forms of competition policy a synthesis of international competition policies is derived, while reforms of the international competition order are heavily discussed. A selection of the most important suggestions are presented, compared and evaluated. Finally, Christian Conrad offers strategies that might serve as second-best solutions.Includes bibliographical references and index.Introduction : on the way to an international competition order -- 1.

Strategies to reform the regulations on international competition -- 5. Economic policy reform strategies for international regulations on competition.They may not be optimal for competition policy but are politically feasible and an improvement on the current competition regulations. They would be a back-up scenario in those cases where the WTO competition regulations are not realizable."--BOOK JACKET.
