How can the DMA promote value creation in Europe’s digital economy?

Date: Wednesday 12 May 2021

Time: 16.00–17.30 CET, 15.00–16.30 GMT, 10.00–11.30 EST

Join us for a panel discussion with expert academics and policymakers on how the European Commission’s proposal for a Digital Markets Act can be adapted in order to promote value creation in Europe’s digital economy.

We will begin with a short presentation of our new report on business practices that generate value for consumers and business users both online and offline. We will then invite our esteemed panel of experts to discuss our findings and the DMA more broadly.

Our Report, commissioned by CCIA Europe [1], combines insights from both economics and management science to shed new light on how three common business practices—bundling and tying, self-preferencing, and leveraging—can be beneficial, and how allowing firms to engage in such conduct can generate significant value for users and increase competition. We also look at how the DMA could be improved to facilitate this value creation, leading to a more efficient, dynamic, and innovative European digital economy.

Presentation of the Report:

  • Jacques Crémer, Professor of Economics, Toulouse School of Economics
