CEI Lunch Briefing: Busting Trustbusters Since 1984

CEI Lunch Briefing: Busting Trustbusters Since 1984

Join CEI experts for a lunch discussion about encouraging freedom and innovation through antitrust reform. Calls on Capitol Hill for increased antitrust scrutiny have been fanned by recent administration challenges to mergers, related criticism of big tech, and the rise of so-called 'hipster antitrust.' While the players may be new, the principles remain the same. Antitrust regulations restrict the rights of individuals to determine with whom and under what circumstances they wish to deal. There's also no such thing as a permanent and assured dominant market position unless the government guarantees it. In the end, the cost of antitrust regulation is the innovation that it prevents.
