EI Vice President Henry B. McFarland Moderates Panel on American Express Decision

EI Vice President Henry B. McFarland was the moderator for a “The American Express Decision –The Appeals Court Looks at Two Sides,” a program sponsored by the Antitrust Section of the American Bar Association. The program discussed the recent Second Circuit decision in the Antitrust Division’s case against American Express. The decision has had important implications for antitrust in industries with two-sided platforms,-those where firms must attract two distinct sets of customers. The panel discussed approaches to defining markets, measuring market power, and assessing anticompetitive effects in such industries.
