(2003) ask females about exchanging sex for money. Two rounds of the Kenya DHS – 1998 and 2003 – ask females about exchanging sex for “money, gifts, or favours”. In contrast, the surveys I use in the current analysis, the Zambia Sexual Behavior Surveys (ZSBS), ask respondents, “in the past 12 months, have you paid for sex or been paid to have sex?”. The 1991-2016 survey rounds of the General Social Survey (GSS) asks respondents, “Thinking about the time since your 18th birthday, have you ever had sex with a person you paid or who paid you for sex?” Fewer than 1% of

assembly of complete final products for the purpose of the domestic market of the destination country. In fact, such undertakings existed in Central and Eastern Europe even before the democratic revolution of 1989, for example during Poland’s attempted industrial modernization of the 1970s. However, the so-called second unbundling (see Baldwin 2013 ) that involved geographically separating the manufacturing stages has led to increased imports and exports of components and truly integrated the developing countries in the production networks. This has facilitated the

process of post-socialist systemic transformation. The Burmese dictator, General Ne Win, resigned. The immediate cause was social unrests triggered by the situation in the country. Events known as ‘The 8888 Uprising’ were initiated by students of the Yangon University. Hundreds of thousands of residents took part in street protests in August and September 1988. The uprising was pacified by the Burmese armed forces (Tatmadaw) in September 1988. Socialist economic experiments of Ne Win’s military junta between 1962 and 1988 led to economic collapse.

Although this adverse market response can possibly be addressed with public policies, risk aversion among employers is neither widespread nor substantial in size to reduce the overall overserved wage gap. The rest of the paper is organized as follows. Section 1 discusses the conceptual background. Section 2 summarizes previous research. Section 3 introduces the data and contains a descriptive analysis of education–occupational matching measures used in this paper. Econometric results and a discussion of our findings are given in Section 4

Digitization has changed economic activity in many ways. While digitization has contributed to a very dynamic development of markets and competition, concerns are also being expressed about powerful positions of some companies. The digital transformation poses new challenges for companies, consumers, politics and society. Competition policy is also required to address these developments and to adapt existing competition law, if necessary. The following analysis of digital markets showed that it is not possible, in general, to make concrete competition policy statements or even to give detailed recommendations for the antitrust analysis. The aspects are to be considered separately and in detail when examining search engines, social networks, trading platforms and other business models. On the other hand, data (and data analysis) should stand in the centre of competition law analysis due to their importance for the economic success of digital market companies.
