School of Banking and Finance

Associate Professor Konark Saxena, School of Banking and Finance, UNSW Business School is available for comment. He can be reached by email k.saxena@unsw.edu.au.

Konark says, “While economic theory advocates for businesses freely setting prices independently based on supply and demand, collaboration on pricing is illegal in Australia, posing a threat to fair competition. I endorse an inquiry into price gouging and potential collaborative pricing practices, particularly in sectors like groceries, energy, and rentals, where we've witnessed notable price surges. This investigation is essential to distinguish between genuine market forces and anticompetitive behaviour, safeguarding consumer trust.”
