Catolica Porto Business School leads a research project for the OECD, involving its professors Ricardo Gonçalves and Joana Pinho, as well as Miguel Fonseca of Exeter University and Giovanni Tabacco of Swansea University. The project, entitled "Cartel deterrence and manager labour market in USA and EU antitrust jurisdictions: theoretical and experimental evidence", has two main objectives: (i) to understand if a legal regime, such as the US, in which collude is criminalized and sanctions are imposed directly on those who are involved (leading to prison) is more deterrent to cartel formation than a regime where sanctions are imposed on companies (as it was in most European jurisdictions); (ii) to analyze possible distortions in the labour market (in particular the relative weight of fixed and variable components of the administrators' salaries) associated with these differences in the legal systems of competition.
