Don Boudreaux & Rosolino Candela on the Revival of Antitrust Policy

On this episode of the Hayek Program Podcast, Don Boudreaux & Rosolino Candela discuss the resurgence of intellectual interest in antitrust policy across the United States. They begin by recounting the history of antitrust policy in the US, beginning with the meatpacking industry in the 1880s and continuing to the modern day. Additionally, they consider the continuing relevance of the "structure-conduct-performance" paradigm and its hold on the contemporary debates surrounding monopoly power and antitrust policy. Later in the conversation, Rosolino and Don examine growing concerns over market concentration in platform economies. Finally, they include an analysis of the major contributions to antitrust policy and how they compare to the Austrian take.
