"There is broad global agreement on basic principles of competition policy: Firms with market power should not engage in conduct that mainly harms competition; mergers should not lead to monopoly; government subsidies should not favor some competitors over others.

Welcomed at @AEI. My line in short: Competition in the markets is as fundamental to a fair society as competition of ideas is to a free one. pic.twitter.com/jqk6qg49a7— Margrethe Vestager (@vestager) September 18, 2017
