State Attorneys General are among the nation’s most important antitrust and competition enforcers, and they are frequently called upon to address matters that pose unique impacts on local and state economies. The AGEP Workshop on the Economics of Antitrust and Competition Law helped state attorney general staff lawyers improve their understanding of competition economics and provided special insights on issues of particular relevance to state and local government. Former Federal Trade Commissioner Joshua Wright and DC Circuit Judge Douglas Ginsburg, a former Assistant Attorney General for Antitrust, led participants through a review of the law and economics of competition and monopoly, mergers, and vertical restraints. And leading regulatory experts and practitioners discussed and debated such antitrust issues as hospital mergers and the competitive effects of occupational licensing.
