Work in Progress
“GTE Sylvania and Interbrand Competition
as the Primary Concern of Antitrust Law” (joint with John T. Scott)
19 of the landmark U.S. antitrust decision in Continental T.V. v. GTE Sylvania, Inc. 433 U.S. 36 (1977)
declares that “Interbrand competition … is the primary concern of antitrust
law.” We trace the antecedents and
influence of this declaration, argue that it is inappropriate, and suggest that
it should be abandoned.
Power as an Economic Goal of Antitrust Policy”
Abstract: I survey
the range of objectives ascribed to U.S. antitrust policy during its first 60
years. I then discuss and reject Robert
Bork's analysis of the legislative intent behind the Sherman Act, and consider
the Kaldor-Hicks potential Pareto improvement principle, a central element of
Bork's argument that the only admissible goal for antitrust policy is the
maximization of net social welfare. An elementary model shows that social
preferences about aspects of market performance not captured by consumer
surplus or net social welfare can be included in standard economic models. I further argue that the role of economics as
a science in analyzing market performance is limited to characterizing the
costs and benefits of pursuing alternative policy objectives, and that
economics as a science is agnostic concerning what policy goals should be.
“Kaldor-Hicks and All That: A
illuminates the importance of the assumption that the marginal utility of all
other goods is constant for the Kaldor-Hicks potential compensation approach to
the partial-equilibrium assessment of welfare changes and market performance.
“State Aid in Indiana”
I analyze an
own-constructed database that documents financial aid granted by the State of
Indiana to business. The project
documents the types of firms that received aid and analyzes the impact of aid
on competition and market performance.
cartels: incidence and recidivism”
documents the most complete dataset concerning international cartels that have
been subject to antitrust prosecution for the period 1990-2013. I analyze the incidence of such cartels by industry
and firm, and relate the recidivism to industry characteristics.
