New Antitrust Realism

Posted by D. Daniel Sokol


Maurice Stucke of the University of Tennessee Law School argues for New Antitrust Realism in a forthcoming piece.

ABSTRACT: In the midst of a failing economy, the incoming Obama administration will not likely adopt its predecessor's antitrust policies. So if change is afoot, what form should change take? This essay outlines the needed transformative change in today's competition policy. The essay proposes more empirical analysis by the U.S. competition authorities, outlines how behavioral economics can assist in this new antitrust realism, and concludes in explaining why such antitrust realism is needed.
