Summary
The study scrutinizes and evaluates the proposal of introducing a deconcentration instrument into German antitrust law. The authors of the present book take the position that companies must not become the object of governmental market design. Breaking up dominant firms as an antitrust remedy is problematic, since governmental planning and not competition would decide about company size and market structure. The economic freedom of companies and their shareholders is protected under constitutional law and comprises the freedom to grow.
