Has US Antitrust Reached a Turning Point? A Panel Discussion

The Biden administration has taken some bold moves to rein in big tech and to challenge market concentration more broadly. Who is winning this battle and why? What are the possibilities for and constraints on a fundamental shift in market power in America? This panel will address these questions and more, bringing together scholars who study the history, theory, and practice of antitrust with advocates directly engaged in policy debates today.

Please join us on April 2, 2024 from 4:00pm-6:00pm for a panel featuring Gerald Berk, Professor Emeritus of Political Science at the University of Oregon; Stacy Mitchell, Co-Executive Director of the Institute for Local Self-Reliance; AnnaLee Saxenian, Professor in the School of Information, UC Berkeley; Matt Stoller, Director of Research at the American Economic Liberties Project; and Steven Vogel, Professor of Political Science and Political Economy, UC Berkeley. Isabella Mariani, a graduate student in the Jurisprudence and Social Policy Program, will moderate the panel.

This event will be presented in-person at Social Science Matrix, 820 Social Sciences Building, UC Berkeley. It will not be livestreamed. Register in advance.
