Competition in The Digital Economy

Competition is a key driver for performance and innovation. The growth of the digital economy provides an opportunity to make markets more competitive, as new entrants and business models can emerge, spurring traditional businesses to raise their game or even exit. Big data, AI and machine learning has the potential to deliver innovative and cheaper products, as well as faster and better services.

However, a changing business landscape and the digital way of doing business can introduce new and sophisticated forms of anti-competitive behaviour.

Drawing on her international experience and expert knowledge, Nimisha shares the economics of competition law, in particular, how it affects the digital economy.

Topics include:

  • Benefits of competitive markets in the digital economy

  • Identifying and understanding the different types of anti-competitive behavior

  • Navigating your business to stay competitive and enter new markets/expand

  • Competition risks in the digital economy

  • Why markets fail? When and how should government regulate?

  • Regulatory policy to encourage innovation and protect vulnerable consumers

  • How government and public policy can promote competition

  • Economic perspectives on competition and trade policy
