Aspen Forum Panel to Explore Antitrust and Tech Industries

Technology has been a principal driver of growth and productivity in the U.S.. Antitrust enforcement in technology industries is complex, in part because the sector is characterized by more or less continuous innovation. If economists are able to predict the effects of antitrust actions on innovation, then enforcement agencies can take those actions with greater confidence. If the effects are highly uncertain, however, the lesson for enforcement is quite different. Experts on antitrust and competition issues will discuss these and related issues at the TPI Aspen Forum, scheduled for August 22-24.
