October 15-17, 2018

Several CRA economists are speaking at this event. The three-day event will examine the potential for collusive, exclusionary, and predatory conduct in multi-sided, technology-based platform industries.  The sessions will also examine antitrust frameworks for evaluating acquisitions of nascent competitors or occurring in nascent markets, including in the technology and digital marketplace; and the approach to addressing antitrust issues regarding labor markets. Michael Salinger is a panelist on “The Current Economic Understanding of Multi-Sided Platforms,” Joanna Tsai is a panelist on “Defining Relevant Markets and Establishing Market Power in Cases Involving Multi-Sided Platforms,” and Bob Topel is a panelist on “Economic Evidence of Labor Market Monopsony.”
