Is Antitrust Economics Not Sexy for the AEA?

Posted by D. Daniel Sokol

For the second year in a row, I have reviewed the American Economics Association Annual Meeting Program (this year to be held January 4-6 in New Orleans) and note with some disappointment the paucity of papers on antitrust economics.  As this blog's many postings can attest, there is lots of interesting work being done in this area by academics from around the world.  Yet, why the poor showing at the AEA?

Any explanations would be welcomed.
