Paul Caron passed on this link to a review of The Abolition of Antitrust, by gary Hull, apparently someone with a deep commitment to the Objectivist philosophy of Ayn Rand. The arguments in the book seem provocative, although a bit tried and worn. Interestingly, the criticisms of antitrust in the volume are based in philosophy rather than economics, which perhaps explains why the articles seem less than convincing. Post-Chicago School theories or advocates of democratic theory would, I think, be the appropriate response to the arguments in this volume.
