This chapter presents a broad overview of the current similarities and differences between the competition policies of the two jurisdictions and of the factors that have shaped these policies and their administration. These can be best understood in historical context by comparing competition policy developments on both sides of the Atlantic in terms of the interactions of three sets of considerations across time: ideology, institutions, and interests. Many of these themes are further examined in subsequent chapters when individual competition policy issues are examined. The roles of the enforcement agencies: the Antitrust Division of the Department of Justice, the Federal Trade Commission, and the European Commission are explained.

Keywords:   competition policy, ideology, institutions, interests, Antitrust Division, Federal Trade Commission, European Commission
