Event Description:
Advancing Competition: The Role of Economics in Merger Policy.
Many journalists, politicians, and academics have argued that the U.S. economy has become less competitive in recent years, pointing to an apparent increase in concentration across many sectors of the economy and an ongoing wave of global mergers. What role does economics play in this outcome? How is economics used in merger analysis, what are some of the recent advances in how economics influences antitrust outcomes, and how can academic researchers contribute to more effective merger enforcement?
Nancy Rose is a Professor and Department Chair in the economics department at Massachusetts Institute of Technology. She served as the Deputy Assistant Attorney General for Economic Analysis in the Antitrust Division of the U.S. Department of Justice from 2014-2016.
