Entrepreneurship and Antitrust Enforcement

Shubha Ghosh (Syracuse University)

Abstract:      Dr. Litan makes a strong case for the decline in entrepreneurial activities in the United States despite the recovery from the 2007 financial crisis. This comment examines the role of antitrust enforcement, particularly in the high-technology sector, in shaping the entrepreneurial environment for startups. Two areas are particularly salient for reforming antitrust enforcement: competition in platform technologies and standard setting. I examine each in turn.
