New Frontiers: Business School Distinguished Lecture Series

The Business School's Distinguished Lecture Series brings together theory and practice, allowing expert speakers to discuss contemporary issues in business and the impact these have in the real world. We look at the changing face of business and the impact these developments have on people's lives. From the National Minimum Wage's impact on labour markets to technology's effect on finance and investment, we draw connections between the forces of business and what this means to the world we live in.

Collusion: The Hidden Evil in the Marketplace. Are We Winning the Fight Against Cartels?

In the fight against the collusion of firms to fix prices and exclude competitors competition authorities have devise new methods to discover and prosecute against such practices.
However from eBooks and cars to vitamins and cement, these cartels continue to prove harmful to a multitude of service and good we use and buy.

With over 70 articles in journals such as the American Economic Review, numerous keynote speeches at university and professional organisations, and experience on a number of editorial boards, Professor Joe Harrington is perfectly placed to understand the interface between theory and practice, a core backbone of his research. He is currently Professor of Business Economics and Public Policy at Wharton, University of Pennsylvania and president of the Industrial Organization Society.

Director of the Distinguished Lecture Series: Professor T C Melewar
