For the most part, competition policy literature has focused on large economies. Yet the economic paradigms on which such policies are based do not necessarily apply to small market economies. This book demonstrates that optimal competition policy is very much dependent on the size of an economy. Whether and how firms compete is a matter of the natural conditions of the markets in which firms operate. A critical feature of small economies is the concentrated nature of many of their markets, which are often protected by high entry barriers. Competition policy must be designed to deal effectively with these unique obstacles to competition. Accordingly, applying the same competition policy to all economies alike may be contrary to the policy's goals.

Michal Gal's thorough analysis shows the effects of market size on competition policy, ranging from rules of thumb to more general policy prescriptions, such as goals and remedial tools. Competition policy in small economies is becoming increasingly important, since the number of small jurisdictions adopting such policy is rapidly growing. Gal's focus extends beyond domestic competition policy to the evaluation of the current trend toward the worldwide harmonization of policies. This book will provide important guidance to academics, policy makers, and practitioners of competition policy as well as to anyone interested in the globalization of competition laws.

About the Author:

Michal S. Gal is Assistant Professor of Law and Director of the Law and MBA Program, Haifa University, Israel, and Academic Fellow, New York University Center for Law and Business.

Review:

This book constitutes a significant advance in its field. I do not know of another book that does what this one does: that is, generalize about optimal competition policy for market economies of differing sizes. It is an interesting mix of descriptive (empirical) and prescriptive analysis, and thus will be useful to both applied economists and legal policy makers of various sorts. It is a well done book and should claim a sizeable audience. (Herbert Hovenkamp, University of Iowa College of Law)

This book is an expert treatment of the consequences of economic size for competition policy. It raises many interesting and important observations about the application of competition policy in general and with respect to particular problems raised by small economies. A further strength of the book is Dr. Gal's ability to weave in comparative information from a variety of different economic structures and economies. (Merit Janow, School of International and Public Affairs, Columbia University)
