According to the philosopher Immanuel Kant, ideas — or the ‘rose-coloured glasses of morality’ we all wear — are the tools we use to perceive and determine our understanding of reality (see Kant, 1788/2008). On this premise, the present book neither seeks to analyse Kant’s philosophical thought nor does it attempt to understand why reality should be necessarily perceived as ‘rosy’. Rather, it is aimed at investigating a much narrower topic namely, the role ideas play in inspiring and sustaining the development of antitrust policies in a globalising economy.
