We focus on the debate between Baker & Salop on the one hand and Crane on the other about the role of inequality in antitrust. As you will be aware recently inequality has become a trendy theme, these papers try and unpick how far this can be used in antitrust. Elizabeth Warren’s speech is one of many attempts to give antitrust greater political salience and is suggested for context.
