I spent Friday and today at the wonderful GW Competition Law Center conference on Private Enforcement of Competition Law: New Directions. The presentations were excellent and brought together a broad group of academics and practitioners from around the world. I received very useful feedback for my work in progress that empirically tracks the interplay of public and private rights in US antitrust.
While at the conference, I discovered that Jon Leibowitz was designated the new Chairman of the FTC. Though he has been a Commissioner for some time, I provide a link to his speeches for those who want a sense of his thoughts on various issues.
