Keynote Address to the Tenth Annual Golden State Antitrust and Unfair Competition Law Institute, Presented by the Antitrust and Unfair Competition Law Section of the State Bar of California
Santa Monica, California
Good afternoon. It's an honor and a pleasure to have the opportunity to appear here today. I have been back at the FTC as Director of the Bureau of Competition for almost a year and a half now, so it is a good time to take stock of our recent merger enforcement activities.

Prepared Remarks before International Competition Network, Panel on Competition Advocacy and Antitrust Authorities
Competition advocates have won many victories over the last few decades. We have largely won the intellectual debate: Economists and legal scholars around the globe now recognize the benefits of competition to consumers and to the economy as a whole. We are winning the legal debate: Courts now recognize the importance of efficiency and robust price competition in evaluating mergers and business conduct.

Thank you for that generous introduction and for this timely conference. Today, I would like to discuss the security and privacy of our communications and information systems. I must first remind you that my remarks represent only my views and don't necessarily reflect the views of the Federal Trade Commission or any other Commissioner.
A year ago, FTC Chairman Tim Muris announced his privacy agenda to this conference. The Chairman noted that privacy and security are two sides of the same coin. I want to take that thought a step further.

For 25 years, the Hart-Scott-Rodino Act has provided the antitrust enforcement agencies with the opportunity to review mergers and acquisitions before they occur. In the words of Peter Rodino on the occasion of the HSR Act's 25th anniversary, "the legislation absolutely has transformed merger enforcement. Competition, as well as the consumer, has benefitted(2)." The HSR program has been instrumental in detecting transactions that have been the subject of numerous enforcement actions and continues to do its job well.
