Section 2 Symposium


We are pleased to announce the next Truth on the Market online symposium:

Section 2 and the Section 2 Report:

Perspectives and Evidence

We have an incredible line up of participants for the symposium, and we (modestly) believe that this will be the most significant online antitrust event to date.

The proceedings will begin on May 4 and continue officially through May 6.  Of course it is the nature of blogs that the content and the discussion may carry on indefinitely in the comments, and we hope this symposium will stand as an important resource for some time to come.

We’ve organized the symposium across the three days so that each day will have a different emphasis.  The first day, Monday the 4th, we’ll discuss some introductory themes and set the context with some more-broadly-oriented perspectives on the Section 2 Report, including the enforcement perspective from inside the antitrust agencies and economists’ views, among others.  The second day, Tuesday the 5th, we’ll devote to the general Section 2 standards debate.  And we’ll finish up on Wednesday the 6th focusing on specific substantive areas, tracking the Section 2 Report and its substantive content in greater depth and detail.

We will look forward to seeing and hearing from the participants, and an engaging ongoing discussion.
