[Three] Antitrust conversations with Nobel laureates [in Economics]

Research output: Contribution to JournalArticleAcademic

Abstract

I am delighted to introduce three conversations on antitrust law I’ve had very recently with Nobel Prize laureates in Economics: Edward C. Prescott, Angus S. Deaton & Oliver D. Hart. I have interviewed them (and others, to be published in the coming months) to understand how useful their work could be to antitrust law. Given the rigor and importance of their body of work, antitrust scholars, lawyers, officials, and anyone who’s interested in antitrust would benefit from studying them even though their writings do not deal directly with antitrust-related issues. Many topics are discussed, such as: questioning the protection of consumer welfare as a valid goal, protecting innovation, improving merger control, sanctioning monopolization, the durability of cartels and so on… These conversations also offer ideas for papers to be developed in dedicated studies. On 3 May 2018 is 'NEW antitrust conversations with Nobel laureates' also published.
