New Antitrust Policies – A Forward Look
The upcoming presidential election in the United States represents an opportunity for a new administration to revise the country's approach to antitrust. Will we have a revival in agency antitrust enforcement activity and is one needed? The American Antitrust Institute recently published its transition report on competition policy, providing antitrust watchers one view on what might be in the antitrust enforcement pipeline.
The Knowledge Congress has assembled a panel of distinguished professionals and thought leaders to discuss AAI’s report and other sources to help give the public a forward look at what they may expect to see in terms of future antitrust enforcement activity. The speakers will present their expert opinions in a two-hour Live Webinar.
