Eleanor Fox, Walter J. Derenberg Professor of Trade Regulation, has teamed up with Bert Foer, president of the American Antitrust Institute, to make an instructional video for competition (antitrust) authorities in developing countries. The video was made as part of the Curriculum Project of the International Competition Network, and features present and past heads of competition authorities from around the world, especially in Africa and Latin America, and examines particular problems faced by those jurisdictions and how they might be addressed. It includes two scenarios modeled on real-life problems: the takeover of a local firm by a global supermarket chain, threatening jobs and small suppliers, and an "abuse of dominance" by a state-owned enterprise that is a favorite of the government.
