Abstract

This publication features conversations on antitrust law with Nobel Prize laureates in Economics and aim at understanding how useful their work could be to antitrust law. Given the rigor and importance of their body of work, antitrust scholars, lawyers, officials, and anyone who's interested in antitrust would benefit from studying them even though their writings do not deal directly with antitrust-related issues. These conversations point out which articles should be read first, what they contain and to what extent they can improve antitrust law. They also offer ideas for papers to be developed in dedicated studies.

These experts offer nuanced, useful, and sometimes surprising insights on the evolving interface between antitrust law and economics. This is an exclusive window into the thoughts of Nobel Laureates, their current projects, and how their work can inform the antitrust enterprise.

Three conversations were first published in March 2018, with: - Edward C. Prescott - Angus S. Deaton - Oliver D. Hart

Three new conversations are published in May 2018, with: - A. Michael Spence - Alvin E. Roth - Robert J. Aumann
