This book offers an unparalleled analysis of the emerging law and economics of competition policy in Latin America. Nearly all Latin American countries now have competition laws and agencies to enforce them. Yet, these laws and agencies are relatively young. The relative youth of Latin American competition agencies and the institutional and political environment in which they operate limit the ability of agencies to effectively address anti-competitive conduct. Competition policy is a tool to overcome anti-market traditions in Latin America. Effective competition policy is critical to assisting in the growth of Latin American economies, their global competitiveness, and improving the welfare of domestic consumers. This book provides new region specific insights on how to better achieve these aims.This authoritative volume will be of particular interest to competition agencies, academics in law, economics and Latin American Studies, practitioners around the world in the areas of antitrust and competition policy, policymakers, and journalists.

This book constitutes a valuable tool not only for Latin American competition authorities and practitioners, but also for policymakers in developing countries and the worldwide academic and business community. It is also a starting point for increased interaction within the antitrust community in Latin America.
...offers an overview of some of the most outstanding aspects of competition law and policy in the context of the major Latin American economies, paying particular attention to the institutional and political environment in which this policy has emerged and needs to (further) develop in the near future...The book makes a major contribution to the still limited literature on Latin American competition policy.
Fox and Sokol should be applauded for their selection of contributors, as they are predominantly local practitioners, enforcers, and academics, and they speak with an authority gained from considerable experience in the region.The book thoughtfully analyses the latest developments in the region. It is highly readable and a useful addition for policymakers, practitioners, and interested observers.
Competition Law and Policy in Latin America is an excellent contribution to a field with scarce available literature. This book is a useful resource for libraries, law firms, and academic private collections interested in antitrust matters.
Competition Law and Policy in Latin American will be of particular interest to competition agencies, academics in law, economics and Latin American studies. However, it is also a useful tool for practitioners around the world in the areas of antitrust and competition policy, policymakers, and journalists. The treatment of "competition policy" provides a useful examination of not only general analysis of competition law in the region and specific competition law issues though case studies, it also evaluates the implementation of the law and the effectiveness of government authorities in doing so, in the context of a developing competition law system.
