Abstract

Because it is taught infrequently, the full text of Chapter 8 of our antitrust casebook, on the Robinson-Patman Act, is now posted online and free for anyone to use. This chapter covers all issues related to secondary-line enforcement, the "cost justification," "meeting competition," and other defenses, as well as buyers' liability. Primary-line enforcement is still covered with the materials on predatory pricing in Chapter 6.

Keywords: Antitrust, Robinson-Patman, Price-Discrimination
