What can we learn from previous shifts in antitrust doctrine? Jonathan Baker, law professor at American University and author of The Antitrust Paradigm: Restoring a Competitive Economy, joins Christina Ma and Sergei Zaslavsky to discuss the lessons from the past and what they mean for the current antitrust reform movement. Listen to this podcast for a historical perspective that clarifies the current antitrust debate by placing it in the context of decades-old trends and a political compromise dating back to the 1940s.
