Abstract

Review of Industrial Organization 19: 1–2, 2001. Editor’s Introduction: Symposium on Free-Market Competitive Goals and Antitrust Policies The following five contributions are about the nature of competition and its eco- nomic goals, with attention also to the antitrust policies that try to improve them. The papers are especially germane at this time, amid the current triumphal era of free markets which has blossomed since the fall of communism in 1989–1990. The first two articles criticize the ascendant free-market doctrines. William J. Curran III, in his “Markets, Morals, or Wealth? Delusions of a Standardized An- titrust Value”, focuses on antitrust-related problems and policy beliefs in the real world of industries, policies and ideologies. Curran has been for more than 20 years the Editor-in-Chief of the Antitrust Bulletin, a leading journal covering both the law and the economics of antitrust policy in the United States and abroad. In the second article, “Economists as a Human Herd”, Donald C. Wellington of the University of Cincinnati directs his critique more at academic ideas. His focus is on economists and their doctrinal views. The two papers were submitted separately, and their directions are somewhat divergent. Yet they share a common critical focus on current
