Example text

Commission [1983] ECR 3461; [1985] 1 CMLR 282, para. 57. what is competition? 23 incorporated in the model by revisions of (1) and (2) similar to those introduced above to express the concept of rivalry. 52 ‘Involuntary’ is an unhappy word, for it suggests reflex jerks rather than intentional actions: the distinction is better expressed as one between willing and unwilling competition. It could most simply be incorporated in the model by adding ‘willingly’ or ‘unwillingly’ to (1) and/or (2), but this would not capture the distinctive feature of cases in which (say) X is willing to do the action in question but unwilling to do it in competition.

For arguments for and against competitive markets, see Buchanan (1985) (which provides a useful survey); Gaus (1998), 29 ff; Hargreaves Heap et al. (1992), ch. 4; Lipsey (1989), ch. 23; Samuelson (1970), 204 ff; and Whish (2003), ch. 1. Buchanan (2 f) divides the arguments into those based on efficiency and those based on morality, but acknowledges that the distinction is not sharp. Sen (2002e) proposes a justification of markets on the basis of freedom, contrasting it with welfare-based justifications.

More explicitly, the premiss is that the action by which X competes is the same as the action by which he acts jointly with Y, the action by which Y competes is the same as the action by which he acts jointly with X, and the goals in respect of which X and Y compete are the same as their goal in acting jointly. what is competition?
