Article by Analysis Group President Pierre Cremieux and Affiliate Edward Snyder Voted a Finalist in Concurrences' 2018 Antitrust Writing Awards

April 2, 2018

An article by Analysis Group President Pierre Cremieux and affiliate Edward Snyder, Dean of the Yale School of Management, was named one of two finalists for the Concurrences 2018 Antitrust Writing Award in the category of “Academic Articles: Economics.” The paper, “Enforcement of anticollusion laws against domestic and foreign firms,” was voted the top article by readers of Concurrences, which sponsors the annual awards in conjunction with the George Washington University Competition Law Center.

Dr. Cremieux's and Professor Snyder's work was published initially in TheJournal of Law and Economics and reprinted in the November 2017 issue of Concurrences Review. In their paper, the authors apply statistical analysis to examine cartel enforcement against EU, US, and rest-of-the-world (ROW) firms by the European Union and the United States – the two jurisdictions with the longest and most robust enforcement histories. The analysis found differences between the US and the EU both in the likelihood that antitrust authorities would assess fines, and in the sizes of the fines.

The Antitrust Writing Awards' Board members will choose one article from among the finalists in each of 10 categories and will announce the winners at a gala awards ceremony on April 10, 2018.
