In February, 1975, Philip Areeda and Donald F. Turner published a paper in the Harvard Law Review making the case that a prerequisite for antitrust action against claims of predatory pricing should be a showing of a price below some appropriate measure of unit cost. This Areeda-Turner Rule has become the standard against which approaches to antitrust and competition policy treatment of claims of predation are compared.
We invite submissions to a Special Issue of The Review of Industrial Organization devoted to the Areeda-Turner Rule, on its 40th anniversary. Contributions that highlight the impact of the Areeda-Turner Rule on all aspects of the treatment of claims of predation, broadly defined, under competition policy regimes around the world are welcome.
Submissions should be received by 28 February 2014. The RIO's normal reviewing procedure will be followed.
Submissions should be made by e-mail to either:
Faculty of Economics and Business
University of Amsterdam
1018 WB Amsterdam
Department of Economics
West Lafayette, IN 47906
Papers that are selected for publication are to be presented at a workshop devoted to Special Issue. The workshop takes place in Amsterdam on 22 May 2014, and will be hosted by the University of Amsterdam. Limited funds are available to partially reimburse travel expenses; housing is covered for the nights of May 21 through May 23. Authors of papers that are accepted for inclusion in the Special Issue will be informed about the details of the workshop by 31 March 2014.
