Rates of discovery of international cartels are much higher now than in the past. The latest statistic indicates that there are on average 50 international cartels discovered per year. This fact was discussed during the June 18 breakout session on International Cartels moderated by Gary Spratling of Partner, Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher. The summary of that session, drafted by AAI Summer Research Fellow Nikos Valance, is available here.
