The Economic Society of South Africa will hold its biennial conference starting on next Wednesday (30th of August). It will be a three-day event and competition policy presentations will be featured on Thursday. Even for our non-South African audience, we thought it a good idea to share with you the relevant parts of the program, as they include interesting research of which it is useful to be aware.
The talks on antitrust-related subjects include:
- Oluwatobi Ogundele and Melissa Naidoo, Institutional mechanisms (IMs) for successful competition policy design and implementation in developing countries
- Keabetswe Mojapelo, Testing For Structural Changes In Prices Due To Competition Policy Intervention: A Bai-Perron Approach
- Joseph Akande, Does Competition reduce Stability? SFA and GMM Application to SSA Commercial Banks.
- Willem Boshoff and Rossouw van Jaarsveld, Analysing Cartel Episodes: A Markov-Switching Application
- Anmar Pretorius, Ewert Kleynhans and Reghard van Niekerk, The determinants of concentration in the South African manufacturing industry
- Tapera G. Muzata, Overcharges and cartel deterrence in multi-product collusion
- Albertus van Niekerk and Nicola Theron, Impact of competition enforcement in the cement industry in South Africa
We hope this information is of use.
