But do such laws actually restrict the competitive process, harming consumers and serving the special interests of a few politically-connected competitors?

In this breakthrough study, Professor Armentano thoroughly researches the classic cases in antitrust law and demonstrates a surprising gap between the stated aims of antitrust law and what it actually accomplishes in the real world.
