Dynamic Antitrust Discussion Series: “Biden’s Executive Order on Competition”

Dynamic Antitrust Discussion Series: “Biden’s Executive Order on Competition”
Friday, October 22, 202103:00 PM to 3:45 PM EST
Virtual Webinar

Event Summary

President Biden’s executive order on “Promoting Competition in the American Economy” aims at creating a “fair, open, and competitive marketplace” for the American economy. With a bias toward small businesses and against large companies, the executive order asks federal agencies to implement rules which may foster a “predistributionist” agenda. To what extent does this agenda stifle the very competition it aims to foster?

Join ITIF for the ninth in a series of discussions on “dynamic antitrust,” in which Aurelien Portuese, ITIF’s director of antitrust and innovation policy, sits down with leading scholars and antitrust enforcers in Washington, Brussels, and elsewhere to discuss the path forward in making antitrust a foundation for innovation.
