CCP Seminar Series | 28 April, TPSC 0.1
CCP SEMINAR SERIES | SPRING SEMESTER 2017
The CCP seminar series will resume after the Easter break on Friday 28 April with Andy Gavil (Howard University, Washington D.C.) presenting on "Will There Be a Coherent "Trump Antitrust" Policy?"
"Antitrust enforcement, and competition policy more generally, is suffering from a profound state of uncertainty in the U.S. as a result of the election of Donald Trump as President. At times he has expressed non-interventionist views associated with traditional Republican administrations, but he has also (and sometimes simultaneously) expressed potentially interventionist views. These more interventionist views, however, have not been those typically associated Democratic administrations, but appear to be animated by populist concerns about the growth and influence of specific industries and competition from lower-cost rival countries.
In this talk, Professor Gavil will discuss recent developments in the U.S., how consensus antitrust policy may be in tension with the new President's populist views, and whether those tensions can be reconciled into a coherent set of antitrust and competition policies as this administration moves forward. He will also explore the question whether a departure from consensus policy in the U.S. could both compromise its role in the larger world of global competition policy and, even worse, set a poor example for still-developing competition enforcement regimes."
The seminar will take place between 1-2pm in the Thomas Paine Study Centre 0.1. Tea will be served after the seminar in the Social area on Floor 0. Everyone is welcome.
