The Future of Competition and Regulation in the Digital Economy

For several years France and Germany (along with others) have pushed for competition law reform and greater consideration of industrial policy (particularly following the EC’s prohibition of Siemens/Alstom).

The last few years saw the publication of several reports exploring theories of harm related to the operation of markets involving digital platforms. These studies have been followed by competition reform proposals including ex-ante regulation in the UK, Germany, France and Italy.

The European Commission proposed the Digital Markets Act in December of last year.

What do these reforms mean for the future of competition enforcement and economic regulation in the digital economy, and perhaps even more broadly?
