Advanced Competition, Economics, and Policy (20432). 3 units. The course will follow on from the Competetive Strategy elective in the School of Management. We will analyze and discuss competitive behaviors that courts and agencies have determined from the boundary restricted under the antitrust laws. We will learn the economics underlying those strategies and the legal rules that may restrict firms' strategies. We will discuss the evidence and reasoning that have been used to argue for the legality or illegality of behavior and determine effects on social welfare. We will cover the goals and procedures of the U.S. and EU antitrust agencies. This course will follow the School of Management calendar. Examination required. Also MGT 589a. F. Scott Morton.
Note: The final examination will be a closed-book exam covering all the material in the course. It will take place on the last day of the class.
