On Monday, March 26, the American Constitution Society and the ACS Washington, DC Lawyer Chapter held a panel on antitrust policy hosted by Cleary Gottlieb Steen & Hamilton LLP.
Recently, antitrust enforcement has been thrust into the news cycle: Democrats have released a new platform - “A Better Deal” - which includes a proposal to crack down on corporate monopolies, academics have asserted that large corporations are using a lack of competition to suppress wage and economic growth, and mainstream news sources are reporting on antitrust issues with increasing frequency. In light of these developments, our panelists discuss the current state and future of American antitrust policy.
