This book reviews progress in the fight against hard core cartels. The OECD has been leading an international effort to halt cartel conduct since adopting its 1998 Recommendation concerning effective action against hard core cartels.
This report quantifies the harm caused by cartels and identifies improved methods of investigation. It examines progress in strengthening sanctions against businesses and individuals. Significant progress has been achieved over the past few years in a number of jurisdictions. But much remains to be done and this report outlines and identifies the challenges that lie ahead.
