Example text

45 per cent of the mergers notified in the period of 1990 to the end of May 2010 were blocked (European Commission 2010c). Many of these mergers were so-called ‘mega-mergers’, that is, transactions exceeding US $1 billion, involving companies of equal size. Especially in the late 1990s, the number of such mega-mergers rose considerably (see Evenett 2003: 31). With rare exceptions of plain monopolies, the Commission justified economic concentration on the basis of expected efficiency benefits from economies of scale and scope production.

This strengthened competition for short-term profits in the financial markets, at the expense of productive reinvestment of past profits and the creation of employment. Increasing levels of household debt could only postpone the crisis of the system, but did not constitute a lasting solution to the inherent problem of insufficient demand. In 2008, when the Bush administration decided not to save Lehman Brothers from bankruptcy, the financial bubble burst in the US. The crisis spread quickly to Europe, where banks and other financial institutions faced insolvency, while a number of stock markets found themselves on the edge of collapsing.

Angela Wigger and Hubert Buch-Hansen Introduction With the ascendancy of neoliberal ‘free market’ doctrines in the 1980s, competition has gradually become a totalising and all-pervasive logic within EU institutions and policies. It is argued that intensified competition boosts the overall competitiveness of European economies and increases social welfare, delivers sustainable economic growth, and more recently, even cures the root causes of the current economic crisis. The idea that the sheer exposure to global competition automatically leads to increased competitiveness was first endorsed in the European Commission’s White Paper on Competitiveness, Growth and Employment in 1993.
