Antitrust Week in Chicago

Josh Wright —  17 September 2008

Speaking of law and economics in Chicago, its the place to be for antitrust next week. On Thursday, the FTC at 100 series will continue at Northwestern University School of Law where I’ll be on a panel discussing the FTC’s competition mission after lunch along with Thomas Campbell, Randy Picker, and Robert Pratt.  The antitrust focus continues at Northwestern on Friday and Saturday with the Searle Center Conference on Antitrust Economics and Policy which has a fantastic lineup of papers and keynotes (including from Michael Baye and Jerry Hausman).  I’ll be discussing this paper by Dennis Carlton, Patrick Greenlee and Michael Waldman on Assessing the Anticompetitive Effects of Multi-Product Pricing.

As luck would have it, I’ll be spending next week at Northwestern as a Visiting Fellow at the Searle Center for Law, Regulation and Economic Growth.  It’s going to be a very busy week for me too!  On Tuesday, I’ll be presenting my new paper with the aforementioned Michael Baye , Is Antitrust Too Complicated for Generalist Judges?  The Impact of Economic Complexity and Judicial Training on Appeals.  I’ll blog more about the paper later.  But if you’re going to be in Chicago at any of these events, come by and say hello!
