An example of using data analytics in a competition matter

November 2017

Luke Wainscoat gave a presentation at the Rising Stars Workshop on the use of data analytics in competition matters. His presentation showed how a new and very detailed dataset of financial transactions could be used to help determine the geographic dimension of retail markets. The analysis indicated that the ACCC may have adopted an overly narrow geographic market in a statement of issues regarding a proposed supermarket acquisition. The presentation is available here.
