Cartel regulation is a prime element of competition policy and an essential means of minimising the adverse effects of cartel
activity on economic welfare. However, effective cartel regulation poses distinct challenges for governments, competition
authorities and commentators across the globe. In Australian Cartel Regulation, leading competition law experts Caron Beaton-Wells
and Brent Fisse reflect on developments in anti-cartel law in Australia over the last 30 years. They provide a comprehensive
account of the current law on cartels as well as discussing key issues that may arise in the future. This definitive volume
not only identifies the practical and theoretical issues, but also recommends workable solutions, and does so with the benefit
of comparative analysis of the anti-cartel laws of major overseas jurisdictions. Many of the issues identified and discussed
in Australian Cartel Regulation are common to any scheme designed to regulate cartel conduct.
