This non-technical text highlights the important points of antitrust law. Antitrust law has become progressively more technical both in its form and in its manner of enforcement. In turn these characteristics have tended to encourage the belief that antitrust law is the exclusive preserve of lawyers, economists and their respected doctrines. Yet technicalities and doctrines give covert and not neutral solutions to the dilemma of: how much private power are we ready to tolerate to preserve economic freedom from the intrusion of public power? How much public power are we ready to accept to prevent private power becoming a threat to the freedom of others?;In this book, Giuliano Amato draws on his experiences as a lawyer, politician and law professor to examine the character of this dilemma and the way in which it has been addressed by legislatures and courts in the US and in Europe. His observations on the history and doctrines of antitrust law and his conclusions as to how successfully the dilemma is being managed by the super economies of Europe and the US challenge conventional thinking.
