In this webinar, Professors Robert Marshall and Leslie Marx provide an economist’s approach to antitrust compliance. They will discuss economic incentives for anticompetitive conduct and the trail of economic evidence that such conduct inevitably produces. As they will discuss, the economic approach to antitrust compliance emphasizes that anticompetitive conduct will not be effective at elevating profits without substantial, well-orchestrated effort, and in that case the ensuing trail of economic evidence will allow the efforts to be detected.
Drawing from their extensive experience as consulting experts they will use examples from cases, and from their recent book, The Economics of Collusion: Cartels and Bidding Rings, to help lawyers understand how antitrust compliance efforts can be enhanced by considering the economics of collusion.
