Abstract

This article examines the tortuous path from economic regulation, to deregulation and liberalization, to consolidation and collusion. It examines several elements of antitrust and competition law and policy, including mergers and acquisitions, coordination of pricing and service between competitors, and the failure of governmental institutions to advance a coherent transportation policy.

Keywords: airline, regulation, deregulation, antitrust, mergers, monopoly, alliances
