This essay reviews Bob Pitofsky's 2008 essay compilation, How Chicago Overshot the Mark: The Effect of Conservative Economic Analysis on U.S. Antitrust. The essay critically evaluates the book's rough handling of the Chicago School and suggests a path forward for a Neo-Chicago approach to antitrust analysis.

Keywords: antitrust, antitrust theory, empiricism, free markets, free riders, merger policy
