AAI is participating in the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) series of roundtable discussions on regulation and antitrust law. Two of the three roundtables are complete. The first, held on March 14, 2018, addressed issues related to antitrust immunities and exemptions. The second, held on April 26, 2018, focused on antitrust consent decrees. The third event, scheduled for May 31, 2018, will examine the issue of anticompetitive regulations.
AAI filed comments for the March 14 roundtable and April 26 roundtable. The comments provide references to important AAI research, education, and advocacy resources for the agencies on these important issues, suggestions for how enforcement can be improved and invigorated, and legal, economic, and institutional insight into applications of the antitrust laws.
