This is a review essay of Herbert Hovenkamp, The Antitrust Enterprise: Principle and Execution (Harvard 2005). It argues that Hovenkamp's modest ambitions for antitrust law encapsulate the current spirit of U.S. antitrust enforcement, which has become existentially, procedurally, and substantively modest. The essay briefly considers what new paradigms may arise in the future to displace this current epoch of antitrust modesty.

Keywords: antitrust, hovenkamp
