Inwiefern kann der § 29 GWB die Situation auf dem Energiemarkt verbessern? Können die angestrebten Maßnahmen, sofern sie aus ökonomischer Sicht sinnvoll und auch durch unser europäisches Rechtssystem gedeckt sind, in der Realität auch umgesetzt werden? Die letzten Finanzmarktkrisen haben gezeigt, dass "falsch" überhöhte Preiserwartungen - sozusagen eine falsche "Zahlungsbereitschaftsbildung" - zu einem Systemzusammenbruch führen können. Ökonomen und Juristen stellen sich damit zwangsläufig die folgenden Fragen: Kann Ähnliches auch in der Energieversorgung passieren? Und - was noch interessanter ist - kann dies auch aufgrund zu niedriger Preise geschehen? Mit diesen und damit verbundenen Fragestellungen beschäftigt sich diese wissenschaftliche Ausarbeitung an der Schnittstelle von europäischem und nationalem Kartellrecht und Volkswirtschaftslehre.

Globalisierung, Gier und fehlende Bankenregulierung – sie alle wurden für die Krise der Weltwirtschaft verantwortlich gemacht. In Wahrheit sind dies nur Nebenschauplätze eines weit größeren Dramas. Eines Dramas, das in der Weltwirtschaftskrise von 1929 wurzelt und bereits seit den 1970er Jahren auf offener Bühne spielt: als die Welt wider besseres Wissen begann, mit ihrem Geld den “Globalen Minotaurus” Amerika zu nähren – so wie einst die Athener dem mythischen Fabeltier auf Kreta Tribut zollten. Heute sind die USA als Stabilisator der Weltwirtschaft selbst nachhaltig geschwächt, und die Konsequenzen des Machtvakuums zeigen sich allerorten. Sie machen vor allem eines klar: Stabilität in der Weltwirtschaft ist nicht umsonst zu haben; sie erfordert historische Entscheidungen – wie nach dem Zweiten Weltkrieg, als die Hegemonialstellung Amerikas begann. Statt hektischer Rettungsaktionen mit immer kürzeren Verfallsdaten ist eine grundlegende Debatte über Stabilitätspolitik, ist ein Neuanfang unvermeidlich.
A Guide to International Monetary Economics is a systematic overview of exchange rate theories, an analysis of exchange rate systems and a discussion of exchange rate policies including discussion of the obstacles that may confront policymakers while running any particular system. This third edition emphasises recent developments such as the creation and expansion of the euro and the radical solution of dollarisation. The book is a concise treatment of this complex field and does not encumber the reader with a surfeit of potentially distracting Institutional details.
Now in its 5th edition, the Economics of European Integration guides students through the facts, theories and controversies surrounding the dynamics of European economics. With clear and comprehensive discussions about European history, law, institutions, politics and policies, students are encouraged to explore and analyse the contemporary status of integration within the European Union. Designed for students taking modules in European economics, the text provides in-depth analysis of economics arguments with examples, illustrations and questions to help bring this thought-provoking subject to life.
This introductory, concise and non-technical approach to international economics deals with issues in the international environment which are of relevance to UK/European students, relating international economics to the European experience wherever it is appropriate to do so. The book is aimed at undergraduate students taking a course in international economics. As well as students specialising in economics, the book will be useful to students on business studies, management and social science programmes.
The fifth edition of The European Economy provides a succinct and lucid account of the development and problems of the European economy since the first world war. It covers the whole of Europe including Russia and Turkey. The text divides into several clearly defined sub-periods: the impact and aftermath of the first world war and recovery and reconstruction during the 1920s; the depression and the recovery of the 1930s; the impact of the second world war and the new political division in Europe; the post-war boom of the 1950s and 1960s and then into the growth slowdown of the 1970s and the persistent problems of inflation and unemployment. It then analyses the demise of the centrally planned economies of eastern Europe and the move to a more united Europe and then discusses the financial and economic problems that have emerged in the early twenty-first century. This new edition has been extensively revised, new chapters have been added and the reading lists updated. Though the volume is designed as a basic introductory text the authors elicit some of the lessons that can be learnt from a study of past development, one of which is the limited power of governments to influence the course of events and to combat the operation of market forces.

Law and Economics in European Merger Control provides a thorough introduction to the economic theory underlying the regulation of mergers. The central economic concepts of efficiency and welfare are introduced and their role in the foundations of competition law is explained. Market structures of perfect competition, monopoly and oligopoly are analysed and the methods for delineating and evaluating the effects of mergers on markets are explained. Having examined the economic context, the book then proceeds to offer an exhaustive analysis of the application of economic theory in the practice of merger regulation in Europe. Through an analysis of more than 300 competition cases the book critiques the current state of EC competition law against its economic aims, and offers views for the future development of the law. It also sets out an account of the European Commission's search for a 'more economic approach' to competition law, and analyses the policy's successes and failures.
