Did We Avoid Historical Failures of Antitrust Enforcement During the 2008-09 Financial Crisis?

Posted by D. Daniel Sokol

Dan Crane (Michigan Law) has posted Did We Avoid Historical Failures of Antitrust Enforcement During the 2008-09 Financial Crisis?

ABSTRACT: This introductory essay for a symposium on antitrust enforcement during economic crises provides a brief historical overview of the failures of antitrust enforcement during major economic crises and wars in the first half of the twentieth century. It then considers the reasons that historical narrative breaks off in the second half of the twentieth century and asks whether there is evidence of its revival during the recent economic crisis.
