This report treats the law of a single system, the antitrust law of the United States, but it is explicitly comparative, because it views U.S. antitrust law from the perspective of the transnational “harmonization” of competition law. It develops the idea of “harmonization potential” as a tool for analyzing the processes of convergence and harmonization. It then applies this concept to U.S. antitrust law. It thus focuses on the law of the U.S. as it relates to this harmonization process.
Keywords: competition law, antitrust law, harmonization potential, convergence, legal systems
