Abstract

Little is known about the effects of competition policy. Previous research work, with some of which two of the authors of this study were associated, has either proceeded at a very high level of aggregation or on the basis of case studies. The present study, by adopting an intermediate approach, based upon the data for a large number of firms, some of them affected by competition policy and others not, may be seen as supplementing these earlier studies.
