Research on Tap—New frontiers in antitrust: Pathways to a competitive economy
May 29, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Join Equitable Growth for the next installment of the Washington Center for Equitable Growth’s “Research on Tap” series—a space for drinks, dialogue, and debate. On May 29, Equitable Growth will host Fiona Scott Morton and Jonathan B. Baker, academic experts on competition and former antitrust enforcers, for a conversation on what we know about rising market power in the U.S. economy and how we can fix it.
The discussion will focus on critical questions at the intersection of competition policy, economic inequality, and economic growth:
What does the evidence tell us about whether market power is prevalent in the U.S. economy?
What does the evidence tell us about the causes and consequences of such market power?
How can policymakers and the legal community address failures in antitrust and competition policy?
The event is open to the public. Please RSVP to attend by May 27.
If you have any questions, please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org.
