Preisvereinbarungen ermoglichen es Marktteilnehmern, den Wettbewerb zu beschranken. Das Verbot der Preisbindung der zweiten Hand ist deshalb auch bei rechtsvergleichender Betrachtung ein zentraler Grundsatz von Kartellrechtsordnungen in den USA und Europa. In jungster Vergangenheit ist dieses strikte Verbot jedoch in die Kritik geraten. Mareike Walter untersucht, wie sich Kartellrechtsordnungen seit dem Rechtssprechungswechsel des U.S. Supreme Court in der Leegin-Entscheidung 2007 gegenuber vertikalen Preisvereinbarungen und alternativen Strategien verhalten. Sie uberpruft, ob rechtsdogmatische oder okonomische Erkenntnisse sowohl in Bezug auf klassische als auch moderne Klauseln in Online-Geschaftsmodellen ein ehemals unumstossliches Verbot tatsachlich nachhaltig in Frage stellen konnen. Auch Umgehungsstrategien und Bereichsausnahmen finden in dieser Neubewertung besondere Berucksichtigung.

The Gold Standard at the Turn of the Twentieth Century

By the end of the nineteenth century, the world was ready to adopt the gold standard out of concerns of national power, prestige, and anti-English competition. Yet although the gold standard allowed countries to enact a virtual single world currency, the years before World War I were not a time of unfettered liberal economics and one-world, one-market harmony. Outside of Europe, the gold standard became a tool for nationalists and protectionists primarily interested in growing domestic industry and imperial expansion. This overlooked trend, provocatively reassessed in Steven Bryan's well-documented history, contradicts our conception of the gold standard as a British-based system infused with English ideas, interests, and institutions. In countries like Japan and Argentina, where nationalist concerns focused on infant-industry protection and the growth of military power, the gold standard enabled the expansion of trade and the goals of the age: industry and empire. Bryan argues that these countries looked less to Britain and more to North America and the rest of Europe for ideological models. Not only does this history challenge our idealistic notions of the prewar period, but it also reorients our understanding of the history that followed. Policymakers of the 1920s latched onto the idea that global prosperity before World War I was the result of a system dominated by English liberalism. Their attempt to reproduce this triumph helped bring about the global downturn, the Great Depression, and the collapse of the interwar world.
