GCR USA - 09 January 2018
It may be icy outside, but at least the days are getting longer and we have curated a selection of the hottest docs in antitrust for you. And they run the gamut – from a study by economic academics on airline collusion; to a federal judge’s opinion in a North Dakota merger; to a Harvard University law professor who says that horizontal shareholding leads to decreased competition; to economists who have found that a high concentration in the labour market leads to a decrease in employees’ wages.
GCR USA - 17 August 2017
As temperatures rise and dockets cool, we have a selection of Hot Docs ranging from economists' analysis of the AT&T/Time Warner merger; an old article by Roger Alford, the new deputy assistant attorney general for international affairs at the Department of Justice's antitrust division; former DOJ attorneys weighing in favour of the Supreme Court taking the states' American Express appeal; and a pair of papers by antitrust boss Herbert Hovenkamp.
GCR USA - 10 April 2017
The top doc today is of re-heated interest with the appointment of Andrew Finch as temporary head of the Department of Justice’s antitrust division, to become principal deputy once the Senate confirms Makan Delrahim. More recent are an essay by Doug Melamed – one of Finch’s predecessors as both principal deputy and acting assistant attorney general – and the Federal Trade Commission’s final pre-trial brief before clashing with 1-800 Contacts.

GCR USA - 11 December 2014
Enjoy GCR’s somewhat frequent round-up of piping-hot court decisions, speeches, essays and articles. This week: an unexpected consequence of Italian Colors, a well-thumbed product-hopping decision, and a Nobel winner’s prize lecture.
GCR USA - 21 November 2014
It’s Friday 21 November, which means it’s time for the occasional dose of fiery filings, peppery papers, inflammable interviews and enkindled essays we like to call Hot Docs.
GCR USA - 24 October 2014
This week we’re focusing on letters, as members of Congress take a break from campaigning to send antitrusty missives to companies and agencies. We also have a group of academics getting in on that act, plus doing their traditional writing of scholarly articles.
