Welcome to Competition Matters

Washington, DC - FTC: "Welcome to Competition Matters, the FTC’s newest blog for all things competition. We hope to become your go-to spot for the latest insights and events from the Bureau of Competition, the Bureau of Economics, and the Office of Policy Planning.

We’ll also have occasional missives from our Office of International Affairs on their work to build cooperative relationships with foreign enforcement agencies, and to promote sound approaches to common problems. Along the way, we’ll highlight offerings by competition folks throughout the agency that may not get front page attention. So if you’re a bit wonky about antitrust, or just want to better understand the FTC’s competition work, read along--you’re among friends."
