Knowledge-based capital (KBC) has emerged as an important driver of investment, innovation and growth in OECD economies. As KBC-focused businesses have grown in economic importance, they have started to encounter and create more competition law and policy issues.


The OECD Competition Committee has discussed competition issues that may affect these markets in several roundtables over the years. This book gathers the key findings from these discussions and provides a comprehensive overview of the role of competition and competition policy in supporting the development of KBC, including the use of competition enforcement to address anticompetitive behaviour that hinders innovation and retards economic growth.
