Dividing companies must become a serious option again

People in this story

John Kwoka was interviewed by the Financial Daily Newspaper (FD), the leading Dutch business news source. The article appeared on Oct. 9. The title of the article was a quote from John Kwoka: "Dividing companies must become a serious option again."

Through mergers and acquisitions, companies worldwide have become larger and therefore more powerful, says American professor John Kwoka. The rules are becoming stricter, but this cannot address existing dominant positions. Regulators should not shy away from splitting up companies, he says. In practice, this is less impossible than the companies involved claim.
