Lecture One: A critical appraisal of the state of competition in digital markets – Thursday 5th November, 4pm
The benefits and challenges of digital markets are highly debated and the United Kingdom has an opportunity to seize the full potential of the digital sector, increasing the benefits for consumers and fostering an even more vibrant ecosystem for businesses. Are digital platforms natural monopolies? Are current levels of competition adequate? Is greater competition in digital platforms possible? To what extent are existing competition tools fit-for-purpose in their current format? These are all crucial questions to answer in order to unlock the full opportunities of the digital economy.
