ICLE Affiliate Thibault Schrepel on Antitrust Without Romance on the Ipse Dixit Podcast

ICLE Affiliate Thibault Schrepel joins host Brian L. Frye to discuss his article “Antitrust Without Romance.” Schrepel begins by explaining the concept of “public choice theory” and how it can help us understand the incentives of antitrust regulators. He describes the data he collected on how the public statements of regulators illuminates how they may be responding to those incentives. And he explains how the purpose of antitrust policy is in tension with many recent developments in antitrust advocacy. He argues that we should make antitrust policy in light of protecting competition, not morality. The full episode is embedded below.
