FTC Unilateral Effects Workshop

The FTC recently released its agenda for its upcoming public workshop on February 12 on “Unilateral Effects Analysis in Litigation.”  The announcement motivates the conference as follows:

Among economists, unilateral effects is a widely accepted theory of competitive harm. Yet, the federal antitrust agencies have experienced limited success litigating differentiated product cases in district courts under unilateral effects theory. Calling together leading lawyers and economists to discuss these issues is a central component of Chairman Majoras’ efforts to refine the Commission’s ability to explain and prove cases based on unilateral effects theory.

The agenda is available here.
