Market Concentration in the UK and the effect of COVID-19 on Business Creation
In many advanced economies, product market power and market concentration appears to be rising. Anthony Savagar will present results from a small PIN-funded project on the level of market concentration in the UK and its relationship to productivity. Anthony will finish the presentation with a look at how COVID-19 has affected business creation in the UK across regions and industrial sectors. Absence of business creation can lead to long-run consolidation of market power.
