Event – “Rebuilding faith in institutions, markets and competition: what is the way forward?”
Frontier Economics (Europe) director George Houpis is visiting Australia and will present at the inaugural seminar of the Regulatory Policy Institute ANZ on Thursday 29 November. “Rebuilding faith in institutions, markets and competition: what is the way forward?” will look at challenges revealed in regulated markets such as financial services, energy and the digital space. Is competition in these markets working effectively to deliver beneficial outcomes to consumers?
To respond to these challenges, there have been calls for greater regulation, greater competition and more enforcement. Different types of intervention have been put forward, and other issues are also now on the policy table: fairness, culture, ethics and trust. So what next for the policy environment? What comes next for regulation, markets and consumer?
George is a founding director of Frontier Economics and specialises in the theory and application of regulation and competition policy, market research and forecasting in the telecoms, postal and other sectors.
Along with George Houpis, the panellists discussing these issues include Professor George Yarrow, former chair of the Regulatory Policy Institute in Europe, Rosemary Sinclair, CEO of Energy Consumers Australia and Peter Kell, former deputy chair of ASIC and the ACCC. The panel will be chaired by Liza Carver, Regional Head of Practice, Competition, Regulation and Trade at Herbert Smith Freehills.
