American Economics Association Annual Meeting and the Lack of Antitrust Scholarship

Posted by D. Daniel Sokol

Once again the American Economics Association annual meeting is upon us.   This year the meeting (January 4-6, 2008) is in New Orleans.  As I noted last year, there do not seem to be many antitrust related papers at the conference.  Is antitrust not sexy among academic economists or perhaps are the academic economists too busy as expert witnesses to present at this meeting?  As far as I can tell from the meeting's program, the following are the only antitrust related papers:

YOUNGJUN CHEN, Renmin University of China and Johns Hopkins University--Antitrust and Regulation: The Experience of U.S. and Its Implications for China

LAWRENCE WHITE, New York University--The Role of Economics in Antitrust Analysis

VOLKER NOCKE, Oxford University, and MICHAEL D. WHINSTON, Northwestern University--Sequential Merger Review

JAMES D. DANA JR. and YUK-FAI FONG, Northwestern University--Product Quality, Reputation, and Tacit Collusion

LUDWIG RESSNER and MARKUS REISINGER, University of Munich--Dynamic Duopoly with Inattentive Firms
