Introduction to Cartels
Series II Horizontal Restraints
Module II-1: Introduction to Cartels
This module includes the definition of a cartel, essential attributes of an effective anti-cartel program, deterrent sanctions, detection, leniency, investigational techniques, transparency, and awareness and outreach.
Modules are available in several formats. Interactive format allows for navigation between scenes and contains links to relevant materials. Downloadable format is the same as interactive, but allows the reader to download the module to a local computer, which reduces uploading delays. You Tube format includes the same substantive content as other formats, but lacks the interactive features. Viewers are encouraged to use the format that works best for them.
As an aid to viewers, especially those whose first language is not English, transcripts are available for those who wish to follow along in written format.
