John Kwoka Publishes New Book: “Controlling Mergers and Market Power”

By John Kwoka, Jr., American Antitrust Institute

AAI Director John Kwoka’s new book “Controlling Mergers and Market Power: A Program for Reviving Antitrust in America” was published by Comeptition Policy International. The book sets out a comprehensive, detailed, and rigorous program to revive antitrust, and merger control in particular, in the U.S. It analyzes the specific failures and weaknesses of current policy.

“Professor Kwoka’s most recent contribution, “Controlling Mergers and Market Power,” marks an important milestone in advancing the case for stronger merger enforcement,” said AAI President Diana Moss. “The volume makes the essential connection between economic evidence of under-enforcement in the U.S. and its likely role in creating and sustaining the problem of rising concentration. This approach gives significant weight to Kwoka’s detailed policy recommendations for strengthening merger enforcement. The work provides an essential resource for enforcers, legislators, and policymakers for implementing meaningful change in an area of antitrust law that has indelible effects on competition, consumers, and workers.”
