Article Citation

Salop, Steven C. 1987. "Symposium on Mergers and Antitrust." Journal of Economic Perspectives, 1(2): 3-12.

DOI: 10.1257/jep.1.2.3


The Journal asked three mainstream industrial organization economists to comment on both current merger enforcement and merger reform proposals: Lawrence White, Franklin Fisher, and Richard Schmalensee. The Journal of Economic Perspectives organized this symposium to provide economists who do not specialize in industrial organization and policymakers now considering reform proposals with a better sense of the type of competitive analysis carried out in evaluating mergers and the controversies involved in proposals to reform merger law.
