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.

Letter from Dan Boyce to CSE activist

Dear Kim: Thank you for taking time to write August 11th. I share your concerns about frivolous lawsuits. I could mention others than tobacco, guns and Microsoft as I am sure you could. For example, Mr. Easley joined in the "Toys-R-Us" case where he and the other lawyers took the cash leaving only three years of gifts of Christmas toys to the consumers. I think also of the airline case where the plaintiffs got only coupons for future travel and the auto manufacturers’ lawsuit where the plaintiff got vouchers for their next vehicle purchase of the same make.

Activist Handbook 2000: Technology

Technology Policy Why CSE Cares High technology promises to give Americans better and faster products and services, yet government seems to limit innovation at every turn. Whether through taxation, regulation or litigation, government just can’t keep its hands off of high technology.

Governments strangle technology development for several reasons:
