Abstract

"If it appears that the European Commission is unfairly blocking mergers between US companies principally to protect the position of European competitors, then the subcommittee will need to reexamine the open market the US has maintained for those sorts of acquisitions." Senator Jay Rockefeller IV (D-WV), chairman of the US Senate Aviation Subcommittee. "I deplore attempts to misinform the public and to trigger political intervention. This is entirely out of place in an antitrust case and has no impact on the Commission whatsoever. This is a matter of law and economics, not politics." European Competition Commissioner Mario Monti.
