"The Failure of Structural Remedies in Sherman Act Monopolization Cases" Translates to "Abandon Break Up of Microsoft"

Forced divestiture does not work.

Crandall published by the AEI-Brookings Joint Center for Regulatory Studies. In plain English, a prominent economist associated with leading public policy research organizations does not believe that the government – through the regulatory or judicial process – should determine the organizational structure of firms in the marketplace.

HEARTS AND BRAINS

BY John McCaslin

She likens her new job as going from the "pros to college ball," the latter "having more heart." Nancy Mitchell Pfotenhauer, whose past "professional" experience includes chief economist for President George Bush's Council on Competitiveness and executive vice president of Citizens for a Sound Economy, is the new president and chief executive officer of the Independent Women's Forum, or IWF, a group of ladies - and a man or two - listed on one Washington list as "in" this year, while the National Organization for Women was demoted to "out."
