The Federal Trade Commission held the third session of the Hearings initiative, an event co-sponsored with the Global Antitrust Institute and held at the Antonin Scalia Law School of George Mason University in Arlington, Virginia, on October 15-17, 2018.
This is a recording of:
- Nascent Competition: Economic Incentives and Business Strategies of Tech Firms;
- Nascent Competition: The Current Analytical Framework
- Nascent Competition: Is the Current Analytical Framework Sufficient? (panel discussion)
The three-day event examined the potential for collusive, exclusionary, and predatory conduct in multi-sided, technology-based platform industries. The sessions also examined 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.
