Event Summary

Twenty years ago, Jerry Ellig published Dynamic Competition and Public Policy: Technology, Innovation, and Antitrust Issues (Cambridge University Press). With antitrust enforcement now a subject of intense interest among policymakers, it is time to pay tribute to Ellig’s pioneering work on dynamic competition, reflect on what we have learned since the book’s publication in 2001, and consider how to advance the much-needed Schumpeterian approach to competition.

ITIF’s Schumpeter Project on Competition Policy and George Washington University’s Regulatory Studies Center co-hosted a special conference where antitrust scholars and practitioners gathered to reflect on the path forward for the Schumpeterian approach to antitrust and celebrate Ellig’s seminal work.
