Abstract

This article tests whether the transition from the old Economic Competition Act, which was based on the so-called ‘abuse system’, to the new Competition Act, which was based on ‘prohibition system’, in the Netherlands had an impact on the Price-Cost Margins (PCM) of manufacturing firms during the period 1993 to 2006. The results indicate that the transition from the old system to the new system, which was aimed at fostering competition, did not result in lower profits.
