This year we are starting the tradition of assembling a group of experts to pick the best antitrust scholarship of the year. We have two categories- best book and best article. We construe both of these categories liberally. By article we mean something published as an accepted paper or working paper in 2007 including essays, articles and book chapters. By book we include anything that is hardback or softback- edited volume, treatise, monograph, government report, or textbook. If trees died in the publication process, we count it.
To assist us in the selection process, we called upon an All-Star cast of competition law and economics specialists from around the world. Our All-Stars include (in alphabetical order):
Stephen Calkins, Wayne State University Law School
John Connor, Purdue University Department of Agricultural Economics
Einer Elhauge, Harvard Law School
Michal Gal, University of Haifa Faculty of Law
Alberto Heimler, Italian Competition Authority (Autorita Garante della Concorrenza e del Mercato)
Geoff Manne, Lewis and Clark Law School
Ioannis Lianos, University College London Faculty of Law*
Nicolas Petit, University of Liege Faculty of Law
John Vickers, University of Oxford Faculty of Economics
Josh Wright, George Mason University Law School
* Ioannis picked three articles in lieu of one article and one book.
The picks are available in the document below. Enjoy!
