AAI has announced:
Louis Kaplow, the Finn M.W. Caspersen and Household International Professor of Law and Economics at Harvard Law School, will be awarded the ninth annual Jerry S. Cohen Award for Antitrust Scholarship on June 23 in Washington, DC during a luncheon at the 12th Annual Conference of the American Antitrust Institute.
Kaplow is being recognized for his article "Why (Ever) Define Markets?" (124 Harv. L. Rev. 437) which "advances the immodest claim that the market definition process is incoherent as a matter of basic economic principles and hence should be abandoned entirely."
In addition to teaching at Harvard, Kaplow is the Associate Director of the John M. Olin Center for Law, Economics, and Business, a Research Associate at the National Bureau of Economic Research, and a Fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences. He has a J.D. and a Ph.D. in economics from Harvard University.
This prize is well deserved. Kaplow's article is worth reading.
