Abstract

Professor David Gerber is a Distinguished Professor of Law and Co-Director of the Program in International and Comparative Law at the Chicago-Kent College of Law in Chicago, Illinois. He is known for his comparative work in competition law and for bringing solid historic research to antitrust writing. His book Law and Competition in Twentieth Century Europe: Protecting Prometheus (Oxford University Press, 1998) is celebrated as a landmark book, tracing the European roots of EU competition law and its development throughout the XXth century.Professor Gerber visited the Tilburg Law and Economics Center (TILEC) in June 2011 and delivered a presentation, discussing the core issues in his new book Global Competition: Law, Markets and Globalization (Oxford University Press, 2010). The members of the Executive Board of the Tilburg Law Review had the opportunity to discuss in further detail some of the themes which surfaced during Professor Gerber's presentation, and it is our pleasure to share the insights from this discussion with the readers of the law review. The interview covers mainly three themes: the need for a global approach to competition law in the context of increasing globalization, the importance of competition law in a developing country context, and the role of economics in defining the approach toward competition law. In the course of the interview, we also touched on other issues including the history of attempts to establish a global competition law regime, the approach to politically sensitive issues such as export cartels and the Commission's struggle to strengthen the private enforcement of competition law in Europe. We trust that these issues will provoke the interest of many readers, and not just of those specifically interested in competition law.
