In this case the Commission has the power to "exempt" the agreement from the application of Article 85(1), and may do so either by individual exemption or by general exemption, that is, indicating the categories of agreement "RESTRICTIVE" AGREEMENTS 47 (and possibly the relevant markets) that are a priori exempt, as long as they contain certain clauses and do not contain certain others, both analytically indicated in the exemption regulations. This normative sequence has induced the Commission to interpret Article 85(1) very rigidly and to bring within the power of its exemption the same reasons as needed to regard a reasonable agreement as non-restrictive; with the result, generally but not always, that on the basis of Article 85(1) the only agreements cleared are where no restriction is contemplated in any way (apart from those quantitatively so insignificant as not to bring about appreciable effects on competition: a 1986 Commission communication sets at 5 per cent the market share for irrelevant agreements, provided always that the firms participating have a turnover below 300 million ECUs).

Let us be quite clear: no criticism, on the theoretical or academic level, has succeeded in dismantling the Chicago School. Over and above its extremisms and its weaknesses, the focus it brought on market power and its demonstration of the efficiency not just of competition but also of many restrictions of competition itself (a much more solid, well-founded basis than the old "reasonableness" for permitted restrictions) have remained acquisitions for everyone. What has to be said is that the success of the Chicago School, which was to reach dizzy heights shortly after 1980, somewhat reduced in most recent years, cannot be explained just by the technical validity of its approach and solutions.
