GCR Awards 2020: voting now open

You can vote here

There are lots of worthy contenders across many categories.  I do want to focus on one category - the academic and advocacy category.  Among the nominees is Jon Baker (American University), largely for his excellent book The Antitrust Paradigm: Restoring a Competitive Economy.  Jon and I don't always see eye to eye on issues but I always find his work to be very nuanced and informed.  Where we disagree, he has done what every good academic does - challenge my assumptions and make me rethink my own positions.  Sometimes I have been moved to change my positions based on his writing.  As some of you may recall, I had a blog symposium on the book.  I thought it would be useful to collect all of the reviews of the book so that readers can get a range of views:

  1. Antonio Bavasso, Antitrust & Public Policies (2019 n.0)


  1. Richard N. Cooper, Foreign Affairs (November/December 2019) (capsule review)

  1. Diane Coyle, The Enlighted Economist (May 31, 2019)       

  1. Jason Furman,  Antitrust & Competition Policy Blog (May 15, 2019)

  1. Shubha Ghosh, Antitrust & Competition Policy Blog (May 3, 2019)

  1. Norbert Häring, Handelsblatt (Nov. 28, 2019)

  1. LawProfBlawg, Above the Law (May 21, 2019)

  1. Barak Orbach, Antitrust Source (vol. 19, no. 3, Dec. 2019)

  1. Fiona Scott Morton, Antitrust & Competition Policy Blog (May 3, 2019)

  1. Mike Swift, FTCWatch (MLex) (May 10, 2019)

  1. Zephyr Teachout, Democracy Journal (Summer 2019)
