What is the modern take on antitrust law? Join our panel of experts!

About this event

For the first time in decades the “consumer welfare standard” for antitrust scrutiny is being seriously challenged by forces on both sides of the political spectrum. On the Left, the Biden administration has appointed unapologetic advocates of aggressive antitrust intervention to head key agencies, and on the right populists have suddenly embraced federal government power as a tool to satisfy their frustrations with “Big Tech.”

But is antitrust even appropriate for innovative industries? What are politicians trying to accomplish by threatening antitrust investigations? Even if government should have the power to break up large companies, is there any limiting principle?

Join the Institute for Policy Innovation (IPI) on September 22nd for our virtual policy briefing with a panel of experts for this highly relevant discussion.

Speakers:

  • Ashley Baker, Director of Public Policy, Committee for Justice
  • Chis Koopman, Executive Director, Center for Growth and Opportunity, Utah State University
  • Jessica Melugin, Director, Center for Technology and Innovation, Competitive Enterprise Institute
  • Carl Szabo, Vice President and General Counsel, NetChoice
