EU Stuctural Funds Other Public Investments.. Reports.. Journal Articles Speeches.. Clients.. Track Record.. Public Policy Initiatives.. Tuesday 7 October, 2014.. Welcome.. Since it was established in 1988, Indecon has provided exceptionally high quality and independent economic advice to voluntary organisations, government departments, local authorities and other clients.. Indecon (Ireland) is a constituent firm within the Indecon International Economic Consultancy Group.. The firm has advised government departments under every government and is politically non-aligned.. Independent research has highlighted the quality of Indecon's analysis and the independence of the advice provided.. Indecon continues to assist clients in the public and private sectors by providing independent and neutral advice applying sophisticated economic analysis.. Indecon staff have published high quality academic work including numerous books on economic policy issues.. These include International Perspectives on the Irish Economy which included contributions from the Nobel Prize Winner Kenneth Arrow, and from Paul Krugman who more recently won the Nobel Prize in Economics.. All of the proceeds from the sale of this book were provided to  ...   existing investment is clear.. All of the sales proceeds from this are for Focus Ireland charity.. An example of Indecon's independent policy advice was the major Indecon review back in 2005 on the role of property based tax incentives.. The analysis was critical of government based tax incentives which had artificially boosted major property development interests in Ireland and the report indicated that many of the schemes have served their purpose and there is absolutely no case for future government incentives.. Continuing to approve new projects would contribute to oversupply and represent a clear waste of scarce public resources.. The Indecon analysis recommended the total abolition of the eight major property based tax incentives.. Many of Indecon's projects have been published by clients including studies for Amnesty International, The National Disability Authority, Special Olympics Ireland, the Sports Council as well as for various government departments and other clients..

    Descriptive info: competition and litigation support..

Economic assessment of mergers for the parties involved, complainants and for financial institutions;.. Economics-based litigation support before national courts;.. Anti-trust investigation support before the European Commission and National Competition Authorities (NCAs);..

Contact link:.. For more information on Indecon's competition and litigation support services, please email us at.. competition@indecon.. or contact us at the address below:.. Indecon House.. 4 Fitzwilliam Place.. Dublin 2.. Tel: + 353 (0)1 677 7144.. Fax: + 353 (0)1 677 7417.. Sectors.. Anti-trust.. Competition Policy.. Litigation and Arbitration Support.. Indecon provides clients with expert advice and assistance in all the major areas of anti-trust under Irish and EC law, including:.. Merger appraisal;.. Restrictive agreements and concerted practices;.. Abuse of dominance.. Merger appraisal.. (including joint ventures) is increasingly relying on sophisticated economic analysis: the new substantive test in Irish and UK law - substantial lessening of competition (SLC) - is a purely competition economics-based test and the European Commission has recently moved towards a very similar test - significant impediment to effective competition (SIEC).. The Indecon competition team is on hand to provide the necessary analysis in a way that is clear and of real value to the client.. In all cases, our merger and JV work takes account of how markets work in reality, including their vertical and horizontal structures.. Section 4(1) of the Competition Act, 2002 (like Article 81(1)  ...   excessive pricing, exclusionary pricing, predatory pricing, refusal to supply, refusal to grant access to essential facilities, tying.. Indecon's services are provided to complainants or to undertakings under investigation and comprise dominance assessment as well as analysis of alleged abuse of dominance, including its likely impact on the market.. ^ back to top.. An increasingly important area of National Competition Authorities' (NCAs') work is undertaking.. market/sectoral studies.. The purpose of these investigations, which form part of NCAs' 'advocacy' programmes, is to examine any legislative or informal practices affecting competition in markets or sectors that, among other things, are important to the overall competitiveness of the economy.. Therefore, these studies have an important economic policy dimension.. These advocacy studies (whether at national or EC level) have a common thread: there may be legislative or informal practices that have the (sometimes unintended) effect of restricting competition (either by making entry difficult or reducing rivalry or both) the effect of which might outweigh any intended benefits for which the practices were originally designed to achieve.. Assessment of these restrictions therefore requires analysis of the costs and benefits involved and a careful weighing up of whether the intended benefits are justified in view of any competitive harm that might result ('proportionality principle').. Our in-depth work for NCAs and previous policy-based assignments put Indecon at the frontier of this important part of the competition portfolio.. A second aspect of policy-related competition work relates to the provision of competition advice in the context of.. regulated markets.. In the past, regulation of markets where competition was deemed not to be workable tended to involve direct intervention - in the extreme case requiring a 'natural monopoly' to be broken up.. Today, following developments in modern economics, regulation is based more directly on competition principles.. This reflects the view, espoused by leading academic economists, that competition may be more effective than regulation in keeping prices down.. This means that there is an obligation on National Regulatory Authorities (NRAs) and undertakings under review to carry out careful competition-based economic analysis, covering market definition, assessment of significant market power (SMP), collective or joint dominance, regulatory obligations (e.. accounting separation, transparency, access requirements) and regulatory impact assessment.. Because the analysis comes in the context of ex-ante regulation, the economic analysis involved may differ in a subtle way to that normally undertaken in competition work.. With our extensive experience in this area, the Indecon team possesses expert knowledge of the key issues involved and how to address them using carefully constructed economic modelling and evidence..

The sources of success, such as the importance of labour force skills and education are examined along with the challenges for the future, such as competition and regulatory policy reform.. Proceeds from the sale of books in the Indecon Public Policy Series are donated to.. Focus Ireland.. , a leading charity for the homeless in Ireland.. The Economic Consequences of Peace in Ireland.. by Alan Gray, published as part of the Indecon Public Policy Series, takes a prescient view at how continuing down the road to peace would pay economic dividends to Northern Ireland.. A central theme in the book is that Northern Ireland's economy would need to restructure significantly, reducing public expenditures' share of national output, if it is to reap the rewards of peace.. The Economic Consequences of Peace then takes a more focused and detailed look at two sectors that might benefit most from peace: tourism and foreign investment.. The study aims at assisting in developing an informed analysis of the international tourism and investment sectors in both Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland.. Responses to Irish Unemployment.. Responses to Irish Unemployment published as part of the Indecon Public Policy Series comprises a collection of specially commissioned essays which address some of the economic policy changes required to increase employment in Ireland.. Ireland was at the time high levels of unemployment which were causing much social upheaval.. This was in sharp contrast to the rather healthy economic conditions enjoyed in Ireland subsequently.. The contributing authors are Alan Gray (Indecon), Kieran Kennedy (ESRI), Dermot McAleese (Trinity College, Dublin), and Brendan Walsh (University College, Dublin).. Each author was free to identify the specific areas of policy that were felt to be of greatest importance in addressing the issue of unemployment in Ireland.. While a wide range of policy areas are dealt with in the book, a number of common themes emerge.. These include the priority of maintaining favourable macroeconomic structure, the tax treatment of investments in productive enterprises, and the reform of industrial and labour market policies.. Proceeds from the sale of books in the Indecon Public Policy Series are donated to leading charities..
