Howard Stern and Unilateral Effects
That’s a catchy title for a merger conference (HT: Danny Sokol). The program faculty include: David L. Meyer, Deputy Assistant Attorney General, Antitrust Division, U.S. Department of Justice, Ketan P. Jhaveri, Senior Associate, Simpson Thacher & Bartlett LLP, Charles E. Biggio, Partner, Wilson, Sonsini,Goodrich & Rosati, J. Gregory Sidak, Criterion Economics, LLC .
For those interested in some antitrust analysis of the merger, you might be interested in checking out the conference on Merger Analysis in High-Technology Markets that my colleague Tom Hazlett and I put on at George Mason University on behalf of the Information Economy Project. While the entire conference was filled with some really nice papers, forthcoming in the Journal of Competition Law & Economics, the third panel features competing analyses of the Sirius-XM merger by Tom Hazlett and J. Greg Sidak. You can access the papers at the same link or listen to the audio on iTunes here.
We’ve also got quite a bit of commentary on the merger on the blog. I’ve linked some of the posts below to get them all in one place:
