Research on Tap—New frontiers in antitrust: Pathways to a competitive economy

When: May 29, 2019 6:00PM - 8:00PM

Where: Eaton DC (2nd Floor, Beverly Snow A) 1201 K St NW, Washington, DC, USA

On May 29, Equitable Growth hosted Fiona Scott Morton and Jonathan B. Baker, academic experts on competition and former antitrust enforcers, for a conversation on what we know about rising market power in the U.S. economy and how we can fix it.

The discussion focused on critical questions at the intersection of competition policy, economic inequality, and economic growth:

  1. What does the evidence tell us about whether market power is prevalent in the U.S. economy?
  2. What does the evidence tell us about the causes and consequences of such market power?
  3. How can policymakers and the legal community address failures in antitrust and competition policy?

The event was open to the public.
