Abstract

This paper examines the application of Sherman Section 2 to systemic financial service institutions and concludes that a systemic financial service institution may be found to possess monopoly power under Sherman Section 2 using a negative externality analysis. Further, the conduct of a systemic financial service institution in deliberately seeking systemic status may satisfy the improper conduct requirement under Sherman Section 2.
