Time: 4:00 pm - 6:30 pm
Place: Zoom platform
The Externado de Colombia University and its Economic Law Department invite the Externadista community to participate in this academic space. The event will address some of the most frequently asked questions about inequitable prices.
It is common for consumers to think that high prices are an abuse on the part of the person charging them; this is the opinion heard on the radio, at dinner, and in the neighborhood corner. In the face of this issue, several questions arise: Are excessive prices illegal? Are they restrictive of competition? Are high prices in the markets economically efficient? Expert panelists will seek the answer to these frequent concerns.
