The Antitrust Revolution: Economics, Competition and Policy, 6th Ed.
— July 23, 2013
By Lawrence White
The new edition contains 20 case studies – 11 of which are new – written by prominent economists who participated in the proceedings of their respective cases. The case studies provide insight into how economists think about antitrust issues as well as the influences of economics in antitrust processes. The new cases illustrate merger policy, including a merger proposal that was abandoned in the face of agency opposition and a challenge to a consummated hospital merger. There are also a number of conduct-related cases, ranging from conspiracies, to dominant firms’ alleged efforts to buy off competitors or deny them customers, to exclusive dealing, tying and network issues. The novelty of these issues and their importance are key features in this latest edition of The Antitrust Revolution.
