Overview

Economic reforms in Latin America since the 1970s have focused first on economic stabilization, later on liberalization and deregulation, and only recently on creating, or in some cases re-creating, the legal, regulatory, and statutory institutions complementary to modern global capitalism. This book addresses a central element of the newest round of reforms: the restriction of anticompetitive practices. Providing one of the first studies to explore the topic, the authors trace the development of competition policy in Latin America, where that policy stands today, and how it may be reconceptualized and deployed as a tool for consolidating the region's economic future.
