The Second Annual Conference, American Antitrust Institute
Robert Pitofsky is one of the key Founding Fathers of the modern FTC. He was present at its creation, as principal author of the 1969 ABA Report on the Commission.(1) In that pivotal role, he crafted a vision for a revitalized agency that remains as relevant today as it was 30 years ago. The core of that vision is the recognition that consumer welfare is the agency's reason for being. Even more remarkably, over the next three decades, Bob, in his role as BCP Director, Commissioner, and Chairman, as well as scholar, worked to make that vision a reality.
