Stelzer discuss the origins and objectives of the antitrust laws. They set forth the terms of the Sherman Act, the Clayton Act, and the Federal Trade Commission Act. The authors then describe the institutional setting in which the laws are applied, before turning to the problems faced by businessmen in deciding on courses of action and by the courts in sorting out anticompetitive from procompetitive practices.
