FTC Annual Magazine

The FTC has commenced the process of producing its annual magazine Compete, which will be released in January 2021 under the theme, Clearing the air: post-pandemic markets and consumer welfare”. The outbreak of COVID-19 has drastically changed how markets operate and has significantly impacted consumer welfare. Some markets have completely shut down while others emerged or were expanded because of the pandemic. In the next issue of Compete, the FTC plans to explore the effect of such market transformations on competition and consumer welfare.
