Richard York of Frontier (Australia) today spoke at the International Bar Association 9th Competition Mid-Year Conference in Sydney, Australia. Richard's presentation addressed issues of information exchange between competitors and discussed the circumstances in which it may or may not be harmful. In some situations, information exchange might be efficiency enhancing, in which case it can benefit consumers and society as whole. At other times, information exchange - including price signalling - could help facilitate co-ordinated conduct between competitors, causing harm to consumers.
