US Antitrust Law: Model and Lens

US Antitrust Law: Model and Lens

(p.121) 5 US Antitrust Law: Model and Lens
Global Competition

David J. Gerber

Oxford University Press

This chapter explores US anti-trust law experience and its influence on thought, expectations, and interpretations of competition law around the world. US anti-trust law has been at the center of competition law development since the end of World War II, and it continues to play the central role in global competition law development. In particular, the centrality of neo-classical economics in US anti-trust law is a controversial and critically important issue for many. Countries everywhere have looked to US law in shaping their own competition law decisions. Moreover, it is the lens through which US officials, scholars, and practitioners have viewed competition law in other countries and on the global level, and this further enhances the need for others and for the US anti-trust community to understand that lens and its influence.

Keywords:   US anti-trust law, neo-classical economics, US model, US lens, global influence, global competition law, competition law decisions, anti-trust law experience, anti-trust community
