#88 What’s in a Screen? Using Data as Evidence of Collusion and Manipulation (or lack thereof)

Screening out potential collusion and manipulation is the key to corporations’ antitrust compliance by flagging suspicious activities early and accurately, and also at a later stage of investigations or private actions. But what exactly is in a screen? The relevant economic tools are very sophisticated and evolving. There are also practical considerations in designing and applying screens, especially as more entities are embracing them. Dr. Rosa Abrantes-Metz, a Principal at The Brattle Group and leading economist in this area, joins Anora Wang and Christina Ma to discuss recent advances and the defense side’s use of these tools. Listen to this episode to get a deeper understanding of screening.
