Example text

Following a final ruling, the Antitrust Division is tasked with enforcing the decision of the court. The Sherman Act alone did not completely resolve US concerns associated with anticompetitive business behaviour. As Viscusi et al. argue, ‘As a result of dissatisfaction with the Sherman Act during the first few decades, two additional statutes were enacted’ (1996, 62). ’5 The act also established the Federal Trade Commission but left ultimate antitrust authority in the judiciary. Like the DoJ, the new FTC was granted antitrust investigative and enforcement powers.

These guidelines challenged the FTAIA’s assertion that antitrust laws should be enforced to protect US exporters. Specifically, the guidelines reflected the influence of the Chicago School in the Reagan Administration’s antitrust policy and, therefore, limited enforcement of competition policy to activity that harms US consumers. This policy shift was reflected in the important ‘Footnote 159’ in the guidelines, which states Although the FTAIA extends jurisdiction under the Sherman Act to conduct that has a direct, substantial, and reasonably foreseeable effect on the export trade or export commerce of a person engaged in such commerce in the United States, the Department is concerned only with adverse effects on competition that would harm US consumers by reducing output or raising prices (USDoJ 1988, 21).

In 1990, the Commission implemented Regulation (EEC) No. 21 The MCR greatly expanded the authority of the European Union by shifting a degree of merger review authority from the individual Member States to the Commission.
