ICLE Senior Scholar Joshua Wright participated in the FTC’s Hearing #3: Multi-Sided Platforms, Labor Markets, and Potential Competition on the panel, Do the U.S. and Europe Treat Competition Cases Involving Platforms Differently?

The Federal Trade Commission held the third session of the Hearings initiative, an event co-sponsored with the Global Antitrust Institute and held at the Antonin Scalia Law School of George Mason University in Arlington, Virginia, on October 15-17, 2018.

The three-day event examined the potential for collusive, exclusionary, and predatory conduct in multi-sided, technology-based platform industries. The sessions also examined antitrust frameworks for evaluating acquisitions of nascent competitors or occurring in nascent markets, including in the technology and digital marketplace; and the approach to addressing antitrust issues regarding labor markets.
