The Treaty of Lisbon which came into force on the 1st December 2009 amending the Treaty on European Union (TEU) and creating a new Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union (TFEU) has important implications for all those engaged in the study and practice of competition law. Some of this is necessary, but not very interesting, consequential changes to which we will all have to adapt. So, there are a new set of Treaty numbers to remember and we will no longer refer to the Court of First Instance, which has become the General COurt.

There have been numerous instances leading up to the introduction of the Competition Bill where Government officials have made broad statements without backing up what they’ve said. “500 statutory bodies” On 28 June 2010 the Secretary for Commerce and Economic Development confirmed previous statements that the Government is in the process of consulting with more than 500 statutory bodies regarding their status under the Competition Bill. You will recall that it was the sheer number of bodies to be consulted that led officials to allow the Bill to proceed while leaving discussions with statutory bodies to ... market research, surveys and trends

Following the Great Crash of 1929, one of every five banks in America fails. Many people, especially politicians, see market speculation engaged in by banks during the 1920s as a cause of the crash. In 1933, Senator Carter Glass (D-Va.) and Congressman Henry Steagall (D-Ala.) introduce the historic legislation that bears their name, seeking to limit the conflicts of interest created when commercial banks are permitted to underwrite stocks or bonds. In the early part of the century, individual investors were seriously hurt by banks whose overriding interest was promoting stocks of interest and benefit to the banks, rather than ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

includes modest raises for some teachers. Trustees Harvin Moore and Larry Marshall were absent. Moore is out of the country. I'm not sure about Marshall. Before the vote, Andy Dewey, the vice president of the Houston Federation of Teachers, told the trustees and the administration that their comments about not having enough money in the budget to fund raises for all employees were unfounded. He noted, for example, that the district is spending $29.5 million for the ASPIRE performance bonuses. Some of that money, he said, could go toward across-the-board salary bumps.

Some on toll agency's board uneasy about plan to replace major contractors
The North Texas Tollway Authority is learning the hard way that severing connections to its five most important contractors won't be easy – if it can be done at all. At a meeting this morning, board members are expected to stop – or at least delay – a process initiated by the staff to replace two of NTTA's most prominent partners, an abrupt about-face that probably also would halt the competition for the other three major contracts due to be awarded this year. The effort to shake up the roster of contractors comes eight months after an analysis by The Dallas Morning News showed that NTTA's ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
