Global Cartel Analysis

Coming soon - Global Cartel Analysis


This year, GCR will begin publishing a package of stories and data visualisations analysing global cartel enforcement over the past 20 years. The data, compiled by Purdue University professor emeritus John Connor and enhanced and analysed by GCR, includes enforcement actions from dozens of competition law enforcement agencies and private plaintiffs against cartel conspiracies both local and global in scope. In this series of stories, we will use Professor Connor's data to help explain and quantify the effect international cartel enforcement has had on the global economy over the past two decades. We will also dig deep to examine specific segments of Professor Connor's ambitious dataset: mega-cartels, executives ensnared in conspiracies and much more.

Our first two story packages will be published this autumn and winter. The first will test the US Department of Justice's goal of prosecuting the highest-ranking executives involved in cartels by examining the rank of those charged with cartel crimes. Then, we will examine the ever-broadening reach of the global auto parts cartel and use fining data to attempt to quantify its enormous global price tag.
