Antitrust On and Off Screen

BY Jason Thomas

It was by coincidence that MGM's "Antitrust" debuted the same day the Justice Department and 19 states' attorneys general continued their own antitrust production against Microsoft. Both offerings depicted monopoly power and unchecked aggression. Unfortunately, both the government's floundering case and MGM's box-office dud are filled with so much inanity that neither can be taken seriously.

Rules of the Road: Europe Buckles Down

BY Jaret Seiberg and Shanon D. Murray

EC tightens merger reviews Europe's top antitrust official, Mario Monti, announced plans Tuesday to set up a special unit within the European Commission for regulating concessions in merger reviews. Monti, the European Commissioner for Competition, said the unit will operate under the EC's merger task force, the team of antitrust officials responsible for reviewing mergers. "What we want is this special unit to look at remedies and to make sure they're actually being implemented," he said in a speech at the European Parliament in Brussels.

CSE Foundation Files Amicus Brief in the Heinz/Beechnut Merger

CSE Foundation recently filed a “friend of the court brief,” defending the proposed merger of Heinz and Beech-Nut. CSE Foundation has long held that the overzealous antitrust activism practiced by the Clinton Justice Department and the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) has been harmful to both consumers and the marketplace. The FTC’s latest attempt to block this merger is no different.

Capitol Comment 289 - Assessing Antitrust Activism: FTC v. Staples Revisited

As the Clinton administration draws to a close, it is appropriate to ask whether the past eight years of renewed antitrust activism have helped or harmed consumers. An excellent test case is the June 1997 preliminary injunction killing the proposed Staples-Office Depot merger, which was at the time arguably the most significant antitrust case brought by the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) during the 1990s.
