Competition, Concentration, and Anti-Trust Laws in the USA
Currently the US FTC has been having hearings on concentration, competition, and anti-trust laws in the USA. Several conferences are organized starting with September 2018. I present links to hearings details and videos of the sessions. As of now, two hearings have already taken place. I have given the links to the third hearing below. Economists Joe Stiglitz and Jason Furman have given speeches and presentations during first and second hearings.
