Abstract

Public choice scholars have claimed that antitrust, like all forms of regulation, is not about advancing the public good, but is instead about advancing private interests that have special influence on legislative and administrative processes. This article, published in 1999, uses the Microsoft litigation as a case study to test this contention.
