FTC/ DOJ Section 2 Hearings Continue

Josh Wright —  7 November 2006

The FTC/ DOJ Section 2 Hearings (aka Hearings on Section 2 of the Sherman Act: Single Firm Conduct as Related to Competition) continued earlier this week with a session on tying Wednesday featuring David Evans, Robin Cooper Feldman, Mark Popofsky, Donald Russell, Michael Waldman, and Robert Willig. This link contains presentation materials and will eventually, I think, make transcripts of the sessions available. The next session is on November 15th and focuses on exclusive dealing. The exclusive dealing session is followed by a discussion of loyalty discounts on November 29th.

Consistent with TOTM’s policy of tolerating encouraging self-promotion of all types, I am also pleased to report that I will be participating in the Hearings’ exclusive dealing session November 15th along with a group of distinguished economists and antitrust lawyers. I’m really looking forward to the discussion. My slides and presentation materials will be available on the FTC site, but I will plan on posting them here as well, hopefully along with some post-Hearing reactions.

    Go get ’em, Josh.

    TOTM’s pretty well-represented in these things. I’ll be participating in the November 29 session on loyalty and bundled discounts.

    We look forward to your post-hearing reactions.

    […] Cardozo professor Dan Crane and I are living parallel lives. We both attended Wheaton College and the University of Chicago Law School (Dan was two years ahead of me). We began teaching at the same time. We both teach antitrust law and have written on bundled discounts. Like Josh, we’re both presenting at the DOJ/FTC hearings on single-firm conduct. And we’ve both recently written reviews of Herbert Hovenkamp’s terrific new book, The Antitrust Enterprise: Principle and Execution. Dan’s review, forthcoming in Michigan Law Review, is entitled Antitrust Modesty. Mine, forthcoming in Texas Law Review, is called Tweaking Antitrust’s Business Model. […]
