I am organizing a signature campaign from US academics to Congress for direct appropriations for the DOJ and FTC for technical assistance (see my papers on antitrust technical assistance here and here). There is currently movement in Congress to get direct funding this year, which would acoord with the AMC's recommentation that Congress “should provide budgetary authority, as well as appropriations, directly to the Federal Trade Commission and the Antitrust Division of the Department of Justice to provide international antitrust technical assistance.”
Email me if you want to sign on to the letters. I attach the current draft versions. I need a response from academics no later than June 12, 2008.
