American Bar Association - Retrospective Analysis of Agency Determinations in Merger Transactions Symposium

How does merger policy affect economic performance?  This symposium will bring together researchers, practitioners, and policy makers to examine the use of retrospective studies to assess past enforcement decisions and improve merger control. The symposium will identify lessons from previous studies, discuss the state of the art in evaluation techniques, and consider how to move the measurement of merger policy quality from an emphasis on outputs to an assessment of outcomes.
