The aim of the course is to provide students with rigorous economic tools for the analysis of competition and regulation policies. The entire course will integrate the economic analysis and the competition law perspective.
We will analyse and discuss the economic motivations underlying public intervention for regulation of markets and with particular interest on the analysis of the main regulatory tools and on economic issues underlying antitrust policies. In the first part of the module we will focus on the analysis of auctions and procurement mechanisms.
At completion of the course students should be able to:
- Understand and evaluate critically the justifications for the public intervention in the regulation of markets.
- Analyse and assess rigorously the economic implications of auction and procurement mechanisms.
