This chapter discusses the institutions of competition policy in the United States. Competition policy in the USA is especially interesting, given that it has gone from being largely a domestic-policy concern to being a policy area with pronounced foreign concerns as well. The United States differs from most other countries in having provision for private antitrust actions. The ambiguity sometimes surrounding antitrust policy in the United States is reinforced by the increasing linkage of all economic policy issues with issues of global competitiveness. The chapter describes the institutional forces at play in antitrust policymaking in the United States and provides a general description of the legal and institutional frameworks within which competition policy is made and implemented in the United States.

Keywords:   competition policy, domestic policy, antitrust policy, legal framework, institutional framework, United States
