Mamma Mia! Italian public choice concerns and antitrust

Posted by D. Daniel Sokol

I currently have a work that I have sent out to law reviews in which I decry the use of immunities from antitrust for public choice reasons.  Adding fuel to my general ire on this issue is news from the Global Competition Review that "Italy's government has exempted state-run airline Alitalia from national merger control regulations as part of a restructuring plan to save it from bankruptcy."  This is a terrible development.
