Dr Šestáková said that there was no systematic anti-monopoly policy in any socialist country, although some scattered measures had been taken. The discussion of monopoly problems was still at a theoretical stage in Eastern Europe, and therefore her own contribution would be theoretical in nature. In considering anti-monopoly policies in capitalist countries, it was important to keep in mind throughout Mr Opie’s conclusions that the interest in such measures in these countries had varied over time according to changes in the socio-economic environment, especially the overall scope of government economic activity.
