The Current State of Antitrust Law
Matt Stoller of the Open Markets Institute discussed the current state of antitrust law. Stoller presented a neo-Brandeisian antitrust framework, which looks not at consumer welfare but at the broader social implications of monopoly. Stoller argued that lax enforcement of antitrust law has contributed to wage stagnation, inequality, and the rise of far-right populist movements.
