All good people agree,
And all good people say,
All nice people, like Us, are We
And every one else is They:
But if you cross over the sea,
Instead of over the way, You may end by (think of it!) looking on
We As only a sort of They! —Rudyard Kipling, last stanza We and They (1926)

The KFTC in 2016 and 2017

As a politically and historically turbulent 2016 comes to a close, it’s a good time for those interested in the antitrust landscape of Korea to review the activities of the Korea Fair Trade Commission (the “KFTC”) in 2016 and consider what may lie ahead for 2017.

The KFTC recently released its figures on its compensation to whistleblowers. Unlike leniency, which is used by most of the world’s antitrust regulators to encourage the reporting of cartels, awarding compensation to whistleblowers for reporting antitrust violations is not common.
