Competition at a Crossroads: Will the Executive Order on Competition Advance Competition, or Restrict It?
Protecting and preserving competition are the key objectives of U.S. antitrust laws, which are all phrased as prohibitions: on agreements “in restraint of trade,” of mergers and acquisitions where the effect "may be substantially to lessen competition, or to tend to create a monopoly,” and on “unfair methods of competition.” In a July 2021 Executive Order, the Biden Administration directed agencies to pursue 72 specific initiatives to tackle what are seen as our most pressing competition problems. Will these initiatives enhance the role of competition, or are they instead initiatives that would replace the outcomes of competitive markets with regulatory requirements? Both views have strong champions and well-articulated views. Join us on September 9 to hear from a distinguished panel that will lay out the arguments and implications of these important policy choices in a moderated program sponsored by the Regulatory Transparency Project.
