  • (2) analyzes the profitability of oligopolistic and predatory conduct and the evidence that can and cannot establish that they have been practiced,

  • (5) describes U.S. antitrust law and E.U. competition law as written,
  • (6) summarizes and criticizes the ways in which the U.S./E.U. authorities have interpreted and applied the U.S./E.U. antitrust statutes/treaty, and
