The history of EU competition law involves consideration of the notion of ordoliberalism. I have selected Tuori, who looks at this notion from a wide lens, and Beherns who looks at it specifically from the perspective of the provision in Article 1102 TFEU. In adddition to ideology, Chirita looks at the drafting history of selected puzzles.
Those unfamiliar with competition law should look at Article 102 TFEU.
