fantastic opportunity for you to listen to an expert economist in the field of collusion, spend time with colleagues outside the workplace and network with academics, government and industry professionals.
Many manufacturers require large numbers of inputs to produce their products. For example, Coca Cola purchases, among other things, liquid CO₂, artificial sweetener, high fructose corn syrup, citric acid, vitamin C, cardboard boxes, and freight shipping. Unfortunately, price fixing conspiracies in every one of these products caused Coca Cola to pay too much for those inputs.
What can a buyer do to defend itself in this situation?
Strategies involve identifying vulnerable markets, carefully designing procurement strategies, and being attentive to the legal environment so that, should the worst happen, the buyer is in a position to recover damages.
This talk will discuss examples of collusive conduct among suppliers and strategies that buyers can use in defense.
Please note: This year the UQ School of Economics will be hosting a breakfast lecture event (starting at 8:00am), rather our previous lunchtime event.
