  • (2) analyzes the profitability of oligopolistic and predatory conduct and the evidence that can and cannot establish that they have been practiced,
  • (3) explains why market definitions are inherently arbitrary and criticizes the market-oriented approaches that U.S. and E.U. antitrust-enforcement officials have used to predict the competitive impact of horizontal mergers and the possible foreclosing effects of long-term requirements contracts,
  • (4) explains the various functions that vertical integration can perform and the ability of various types of pricing techniques, vertical contractual restraints, and sales policies to perform those functions,
  • (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
