Kroniek van het mededingingsrecht

09.05.2017 NL law

De ACM ziet zich in het huidige politieke en sociaal-maatschappelijke krachtenveld – met brede steun voor meer overheid en minder markt – geregeld genoodzaakt minder streng in de leer te zijn, bijvoorbeeld op het gebied van samenwerking tussen zorgaanbieders en sectorbrede productiebeperkingen die milieu- en natuurbeschermende doelen nastreven. Tegelijkertijd voert de ACM haar missie uit en blijft zij standvastig het nut en soms de noodzaak van marktwerking benadrukken.

Ook de talloze kartelschadeclaims zorgen ervoor dat de mededingingscultuur in Nederland bevorderd blijft worden. Op EU-niveau is er net zozeer blijvende aandacht voor de strijd tegen kartels maar ook voor die tegen misbruik van economische machtsposities.
