I’ve posted to SSRN an article written for the Antitrust Law Journal symposium on the Neo-Chicago School of Antitrust.  The article is entitled “Abandoning Chicago’s Antitrust Obsession: The Case for Evidence-Based Antitrust,” and focuses upon what I believe to be a central obstacle to the continued evolution of sensible antitrust rules in the courts and agencies: the dramatic proliferation of economic theories which could be used to explain antitrust-relevant business conduct.

So, one thing they say about being on the law teaching market is that you likely will never before have enjoyed — and, less happily, will likely never again enjoy — so much attention to your work and so many opportunities to discuss it. That’s totally true, and it’s totally fabulous. But there’s a flip side of that that they don’t tell you: after a while, you get burned out on talking about the same paper over and over again.
