    Monopoly Leveraging: Is It Making A Comeback?

    12 PM EDT

    In Trinko, the U.S. Supreme Court appeared to hold that Section 2 of the Sherman A does not recognize "monopoly leveraging" -- the use of monopoly power in one market to confer a competitive “leg up” in a second market. A number of scholars have said that monopoly leveraging is not a cognizable theory in the U.S., noting that the exercise of monopoly power, by itself, is not unlawful and that Section 2 requires either monopolization or a dangerous probability of success. This program will examine whether monopoly leveraging remains viable in the U.S. and under what conditions it might survive. It will also examine the economic rationale for the theory and the economic arguments against it.
