Abstract

During 2014–2015, the Antitrust Division achieved enforcement successes in a wide range of matters. Many, such as the case against American Express, played out publicly in court proceedings. But two of the Division’s most significant investigations over the past year involved mergers that the parties abandoned in the face of concerns that were expressed by the Division. In each of these mergers, economic analysis played an important role in understanding their likely impact on competition. This article provides a sample of the types of issues that have been raised in recent antitrust cases that did not, ultimately, end up on the public record.
