REJECTED! ANTITRUST ECONOMISTS AS EXPERT WITNESSES IN THE POST-DAUBERT WORLD

Nicola Giocoli has written REJECTED! ANTITRUST ECONOMISTS AS EXPERT WITNESSES IN THE POST-DAUBERT WORLD.

ABSTRACT: Economists regularly appear as expert witnesses in antitrust litigations. This paper analyzes how their models and methodologies have performed vis-à-vis the standards of relevance and reliability affirmed by the US Supreme Court in Daubert and its progeny. Some explanations for the economists’ troubles when facing a Daubert challenge in antitrust cases are provided.
