This thesis consists of self-contained analyses of three current topics in the field of competition policy. In Chapter 2, the impact of (a reduction of) complexity on welfare in competition cases is analyzed in a setting where asymmetric parties can acquire information to help their case and submit it to the decision-maker. In Chapter 3, the price effects of horizontal mergers as well as the incentives of firms to merge are analyzed in a bidding market. Finally, in Chapter 4, the impact of different pricing schemes on firms’ incentives to collude is analyzed in a differentiated-products market.
