Mark Newman Berry, Lewis T. Evans
Victoria University Press, 2003 - Business & Economics - 304 pages
This collection of papers brings together the lessons learned from New Zealand's Commerce Act 1986 and its principal subsequent amendments. Providing concise analysis of those amendments, and of topics relating to the original Commerce Act, it pays particular attention to the introduction of economic regulation into the electricity and telecommunication markets. This volume outlines the impact of the Ministry of Economic Development on the effectiveness of the Commerce Act, international perspectives on competition law and methods for administering penalties in competition law cases.
