Antitrust Law and Local Government

Front Cover
Quorum Books, 1985 - Law - 220 pages

Will treating the conduct of local governments the same as the conduct of private enterprises pose serious threats to government, industry, or the antitrust laws? Mark Lee argues that the nation will be better off as a result because efficient forms of economic organization, previouly prohibited by the judiciary, will be permitted to flower and antitrust's policy war with itself will be put to an end. Lee reviews the powerful implications of the Supreme Court rulings in City of Lafayette v. Louisiana Power and Light and Community Communications Co. v. City of Boulder and offers a comprehensive, up-to-date, and detailed analysis of cases involving allegations that a local government commited an antitrust offense. He introduces a unique system for classifying different practices, one based on microeconomic functions, that will permit practitioners to classify and analyze any practice that concerns them.
