Using and Misusing Microeconomics: Federal Trade Commission v. Qualcomm

Secretariat Managing Director Keith Waehrer and Professor Carl Shapiro (University of California, Berkeley, Haas School of Business) authored the chapter “Using and Misusing Microeconomics: Federal Trade Commission v. Qualcomm” in the recently published book “ANTITRUST ECONOMICS AT A TIME OF UPHEAVAL: Recent Competition Policy Cases on Two Continents” from Competition Policy International.

With significant changes in competition policy happening on both sides of the Atlantic over the past decade, antitrust economics has played an increasingly prominent role in the reasoning of regulators and courts. This book features contributions from leading antitrust economists who have been involved first-hand in groundbreaking merger, monopolization, and anticompetitive-agreement cases that have shaped this era.

Edited by John Kwoka, Jr., Tommaso M. Valletti, and Lawrence J. White, eds, the volume is available here.
