Abstract

Change is in the air and it is coming to antitrust and competition policy in the United States. The unexpected election of President-elect Donald J. Trump opened wide the speculation or mystery about what he and his advisors are planning concerning his administration’s antitrust policy. During the election campaign, President-Elect Trump did not address much the issue of antitrust enforcement. Former enforcers, senior antitrust experts from international companies, lawyers from law firms and high profile academics provide their opinions on what will, and what should antitrust enforcement look like in a Trump administration, which changes should be expected in term of policy, merger control, international cooperation and the likes.

Keywords: United States, Antitrust Policy, Presidential Election, Mergers, Cartels, Monopolization, International Cooperation, European Union
