Abstract and Keywords

This article examines comparative competition law. It looks first at the current state of the literature. It envisions a path for comparative antitrust law scholarship that may allow it to realize more fully its potential value and respond more effectively to the challenges of economic globalization. Three main themes run through this article. One is that US law dominates the world of comparative competition law scholarship. A second is that the centrality of US law and experience divides the writing in the area and often distorts it. The third thread that runs through this article identifies the potential impact of economic globalization on the agenda of comparative competition law and the opportunities it creates for writers in the area to contribute to creating a sounder policy framework for transnational markets.

Keywords: antitrust law, comparative law, competition law, globalization, international economic regulation, transnational law
