In recent years, and especially within the last few months, a “perfect storm” of developments are producing new tensions and new debates in the field of antitrust that to date have failed to produce anything approaching a consensus about the best path forward for this crucial policy sector. We will explore salient antitrust policy issues that will be front-and-center as we head into the next year.
