This Essay is principally about economic policy. It highlights the importance of competition policy and suggests that its weight needs to be increased in the overall economic policy, and specifically in some areas closely related to competition. The increased weight principally means that the objectives of economic policy as public values must be included in professional, political and governmental decision-making. This is not driven by any professional chauvinism, but rather by the political need of necessary interest reconciliation and search for compromise. I also believe that competition policy must be in the same category as monetary, financial, or trade policy.
