National Economists Club Luncheon with
John Mayo, Professor of Economics, Business and Public Policy, McDonough School of Business: “New Debates & Tensions in Antitrust: What Does the Future Hold?"
Wharton Club Members & Guests invited
In recent years, and especially within the last few months, a “perfect storm” of developments is producing new tensions and new debates in the field of antitrust that to date have failed to produce anything approaching a consensus about the best path forward for this crucial policy sector. To provide some background and framing, Prof. Mayo will discuss and field questions on salient antitrust policy issues that will be front-and-center as we head into 2019 and beyond.
