Abstract:     
This essay criticizes the Federal Trade Commission's defense of its use Section 5 of the FTC Act in the Intel case. The FTC's (and particularly Chairman Leibowitz') claims that the error cost concerns that figure prominently in recent Supreme Court Sherman Act cases ought not to apply, and are not intended to apply, to government enforcers are misguided and dangerous.
