Antitrust and Competition Conference - Monopolies and Politics Can Antitrust Tackle the Political Power of Economic Conglomerates?
- February 18, 2021
Join the Stigler Center for a conversation with Ido Baum (COLMAN), Sally Hubbard (Open Markets Institute), and Didi Lachman Messer (COLMAN) on how to possibly develop new methods for antitrust laws to identify the political power of conglomerates with economy-wide concentration. The conversation will draw from Baum and Lachman Messer’s forthcoming paper, which builds on the Israeli experience to develop a methodology for identifying economy-wide power with potentially excessive political influence. The conversation will be moderated by Stigler Center Fellow Filippo Lancieri.
