The Institute of Economics at the Hungarian Academy of Sciences launched a new series of publications entitled “Verseny és szabályozás” (Competition and Regulation) in 2007. Eight annual volumes have been published so far, all in Hungarian. The current volume is the first one in English, and it contains 12 selected translations from the crop of the first seven years. It offers the reader a glimpse into the current state of research in its chosen field in Hungary. The publication of this volume has been financially supported by the Hungarian Competition Authority.
