Research output: Book/ReportCommissioned report

Abstract

Economics always has played an important role within the field of state
aid. Prominent examples include the assessment whether a government
act like a "private investor" in providing (financial) support to a selected
enterprise or a group of enterprises as well as the exemption rule under
Article 86 EC Treaty for the provision of services of general economic
interest, the so-called "net additional cost test". In the following, these
two aspects will be elaborated. Moreover, the concept of "distortion of
competition" will be discussed.
