CLPINZ Preview

This weekend is the 29th annual workshop of the Competition Law and Policy Institute of New Zealand (CLIPNZ). It's a chance for practitioners to meet and discuss topical issues and this year's program looks great.

Keynote speaker Prof Joe Harrington from Wharton will kick us off. His current research focuses on collusion and cartels and designing competition policy to detect and deter collusion. Just what we need.

Heaps of great stuff follows, on cartels, litigation strategy, telecommunications regulation, the Commerce Commissions new market studies powers, consumer data issues, and economic analysis of mergers. 

I'm tail-end Charlie, with a paper that advocates serious changes, particularly in how we treat service-supplying oligopolies. Impartial observers such as the OECD and the Productivity Commission (led by Graham Scott) agree that weak competition, particularly in services, is a serious drag on our economic performance.

My main argument is that we have to learn how to regulate oligiopolies.

I'll be more specific about what this means after my ideas are road-tested at the workshop.

    Good day everyone,I can’t hide this great testimony that took place in my life I will love everyone to know it and be a partaker of this, that is why I want to share it to the whole world by placing this advert on classifieds, I am Mr Morgan Smith by name, I live in Chicago, United State, I want to thank ROBBINSON MOORE for his kindness upon my family life, I never knew that there is still a sincere and trustworthy lender like this on the internet and on earth. Just some days I was in search for a loan of $ 150,000.00, As I was in search of funds to start up a business. I was scammed about $15,000.00 dollars and I decided not to involve my self in such business again. But a Friend of mine introduced me to a loan firm due to my appearance and doings and also my complains to her. And I told her that I am not interested in any loan deal anymore but she told me that there is still a sincere lender who she will recommend me to, And she gave me the details of this man who is called MOORE ROBBINSON. And I really put a trial and I am most greatful and lucky today, I was given a loan amount of $95,000,00 Dollars by this great firm MOORE LOAN COMPANY. If you arew in need of a genuine, Sincere, durable and a truth worthy loan lender or financial assistance and also you know you can be reliable and trusted, capable of paying back at the due / duration time of the funds I will advice you to send your contact to them via email @[] OR Text +1(414) 454-9493 .
