Broberg on the European Commission's jurisdiction to scrutinise mergers / Morten P. Broberg.

Location: lax
Call #: KJE6467 .B76 2013
Publisher:


Since the EC Merger Regulation was adopted in 1989, merger control has become established as an important part of EC competition law so that today all major businesses and law firms are aware of the Commission's extensive powers in this field. Right from the beginning, the Regulation's scope has occupied a central role in many mergers taking place both inside and outside the European Community. The second edition of The European Commission's Jurisdiction to Scrutinise Mergers provides the most thorough examination of the Commission's jurisdiction to examine mergers under the Regulation. Even though the Merger Regulation provides a detailed account of what mergers fall within the Commission's jurisdiction--and irrespective of the large number of cases that have now been decided by the Commission--the delimitation of jurisdiction continues to create significant problems. The second edition of The European Commission's Jurisdiction to Scrutinise Mergers offers a comprehensive and up-to-date analysis of all aspects of this delimitation. It provides valuable guidance to businesses, their legal advisors and competition law enforcers in the Commission as well as in the Member States. Find out more (catalog link)

Wasting a crisis : why securities regulation fails / Paul G. Mahoney.

Location: lax
Call #: KF1070 .M34 2015
Publisher:


The recent financial crisis led to sweeping reforms that inspired countless references to the financial reforms of the New Deal. Comparable to the reforms of the New Deal in both scope and scale, the Dodd-Frank Act of 2010, the main regulatory reform package introduced in the United States, also shared with New Deal reforms the assumption that the underlying cause of the crisis was misbehavior by securities market participants, exacerbated by lax regulatory oversight. With 'Wasting a Crisis', Paul G. Mahoney offers persuasive research to show that this now almost universally accepted narrative of market failure, broadly similar across financial crises, is formulated by political actors hoping to deflect blame from prior policy errors.
