FEE Stories – ICLE Chief Economist Brian Albrecht was cited in a blog post at FEE Stories about the Federal Trade Commission’s major antitrust case against Amazon. You can read full piece here.

To sum up, the new FTC case against Amazon is rooted in familiar problems with antitrust cases—ambiguity and an inappropriate benchmark for competition remain at the heart of these complaints. I can only cover so much ground here, but if you’re interested in learning more about some of the issues with the case, I recommend following the International Center for Law and Economics’s own Brian Albrecht. Brian has analyzed this case with more technical detail and dedicates many Twitter threads and Substack posts to antitrust issues in theory and practice.
