Associate Professor of Economics
University of Chicago
Thomas Wollmann is an associate professor in the microeconomics group at the University of Chicago Booth School of Business and a National Bureau of Economic Research faculty research fellow. Wollmann studies industrial organization economics, antitrust law, competition policy, and innovation. His most recent work studies a "loophole" in U.S. law that allows firms engaging in anticompetitive mergers to avoid detection by the antitrust authorities, resulting in significant consolidation of economically important industries. His work has appeared in top economics journals such as the American Economic Review and American Economic Review: Insights. At Booth, Wollmann teaches "Competitive Strategy," an MBA-level course. He received his Ph.D. in economics at Harvard University.
