A Study of German Business Concentration and Its Regulation
Fry, Lawrence Bryan
MetadataShow full item record
The primary concern of my paper is the disclosure of the fundamental laws, both from Bonn and from the various European community organizations, which regulate the concentration of German business. I will also discuss the actual influence of these laws. Some discussion of the other environmental factors is included to better reveal the actual influence. The problems that the legislators and courts face in attempting to define their goals and find the methods to realization are prevalent in all semi-free market societies. These goals and methods are the inseparable elements of the total subject involved, so it is reasonable that I give the former some consideration before I delve into the latter. My initial task, then, will be to provide a brief discussion of the general objectives of the law and regulation of business concentration.
