Milton Friedman believed that “instead of promoting competition, antitrust laws tend to do exactly the opposite.” Complicating the issue, the expansion of markets through technology means that many businesses are now subject to overlapping and even conflicting antitrust enforcement regimes.

This panel will examine the role of states in enforcing antitrust laws in this time of globalized markets. Does an overlapping, multijurisdictional approach to antitrust enforcement hamper markets and make them less competitive, or is the involvement of states part of a robust regulatory process that leads to more competitive markets?
