Markets, regulation and competition

Markets, regulation and competition

Understanding the functioning of markets is a necessary condition for designing business-level regulations and strategies that increase well-being and promote innovation. The main objective of this area is to promote and develop quality applied research on the operation of regulated markets and the different industrial sectors. The aim is to contribute to enriching the public debate on sectoral regulations, public policies and industrial strategies, generating ideas in fields as diverse as public procurement, economic analysis of law or competition policies.



The strategic complementarity between competition and industrial policy

Despite broad-based agreement within economic circles regarding the drawbacks related to the application of industrial policies, recent global challenges have reopened the debate over their potential benefits. If public sector intervention is indeed necessary, it should be aligned to encourage competition and innovation.
