DCI Submission to the Brazil Ministry of Economy on the Economic. and Competitive Aspects of Digital Platforms

In its comments on the ‘Economic and Competitive Aspects of Digital Platforms’ for the Brazil Ministry of Economy (Ministério da Economia), the Dynamic Competition Initiative (DCI) suggests that law and policy initiatives towards digital platforms should:

  1. focus on curbing monopoly rents in bottleneck markets, and not undermine diversification efforts towards technological frontiers;
  2. leverage the capability and flexibility of existing competition rules to address digital platforms anticompetitive conduct; and
  3. properly credit the consumer welfare gains stemming from digital platforms ecosystems given the domestic economic context.
