Peacock and H. Willgerodt, Germany's Social Market Economy (Macmillan, London, 1989). 42 TECHNICAL PROFILE: EUROPE in the Bundestag by Franz Bohm, the Freiburg School's most illustrious lawyer, who had since become a member of parliament. One pillar of the Bill had been the creation of an independent antitrust authority, specifically to create a diaphragm between political and economic power and thus prevent them from colluding. The law set up the authority, but reserved for government the power of adopting decisions that might depart from its own, in the national interest.

Among these was Italy, where various bills had come before parliament from the early 1950s. One of them, written by the foremost Italian competition lawyer, Tullio Ascarelli, and presented by Ugo La Malfa and Riccardo Lombardi, was designed in surprising harmony with Franz Bohm's ideas. But nothing was done, even though parliamentary debates went on for more than two terms, and the theme was dropped in the early 1960s when a Commission of Parliamentary Inquiry into competition reached the conclusion that there were no worrying bottlenecks in Italy.

The law set up the authority, but reserved for government the power of adopting decisions that might depart from its own, in the national interest. It concerned itself with preventing abuses of market power, but also left room for "crisis cartels", and directly exempted whole sectors from its prohibitions: banks, insurance, transport, and public utilities in general.
