New Directions in Antitrust Enforcement

Washington, DC
22 September 2009
Hosted By: NERA Economic Consulting

The antitrust enforcers of the Obama administration have settled into their offices and antitrust practitioners are seeing green shoots of their own: new directions in enforcement have begun to emerge. In this seminar, NERA Special Consultant Dr. Michael Baye, until recently Director of the Bureau of Economics at the US Federal Trade Commission, discussed the role economics is playing in the evolution of thinking about merger review at the FTC and the Antitrust Division of the Department of Justice. Vice President Dr. Elizabeth Bailey, until recently an award-winning economics faculty member at the W.P. Carey Business School, discussed how the emerging field of behavioral economics can advance modern antitrust analyses. Senior Vice President Dr. Ramsey Shehadeh served as moderater.
