This course examines the laws that protect consumers by ensuring competition in the marketplace. Topics include agreements among rivals, agreements between firms and their suppliers and customers, monopolization, mergers, and antitrust and the “new economy.” The course builds on Supreme Court case law to study influential modern lower court decisions and government enforcement guidelines. Although the economic concepts and thinking characteristic of contemporary antitrust analysis are integrated throughout, the economic content of the course is accessible to students without a background in that field. Upon successful completion of this course students should be able to demonstrate a fundamental knowledge of the economic underpinnings of modern antitrust law and policy, demonstrate the ability to identify and analyze issues arising from collusionary and exclusionary anticompetitive practices, and demonstrate the ability to resolve hypotheticals concerning such practices.
