Antitrust is in the news, partly because Biden administration appointees continue to take an aggressive approach to enforcement. Why is this important, and how has antitrust thinking evolved over time? In this conversation, Capitalisn’t hosts Bethany McLean and Luigi Zingales draw from Zingales’s long-standing research and from a recent antitrust conference organized by Chicago Booth’s Stigler Center exploring new paradigms of traditional economic ideas. Together, they trace the evolution of antitrust from its fraught foundations to today’s version, shaped by decades of political, economic, and legal minds. In the process, they spell out what a changing antitrust landscape could mean for us all.
