By Jacob H. Huebert on December 5, 2003
Format: Paperback
Armentano analyzes and lays waste to the fallacies underlying the standard Chicago school economic analysis of monopolies, and how it has been applied by courts interpreting the antitrust laws.
This book is short and easy to read, and it is an essential supplement for anyone trying to make sense of antitrust law and economics.

This book absolutely takes apart Antitrust laws and shows them for the central planning, corrupt pieces of legislation they are. Armentano proves that Antitrust legislation hurts the very people it claims to protect by hindering, or destroying, businesses that have raised production and lowered prices in order to provide a great service for the people. He show us that government's hunt for "monopolies" results in petty allegations and the destroying of innocent peoples' livelihoods.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
A concise and easy to understand analysis of the flaws in anti-trust law with numerous examples of cases that made little sense - if the goal is to benefit the consumer. It is a one-sided view, however, it helps provide a balanced perspective to the topic of anti-trust.

Format: Paperback
Dr. Armentano's book is remarkable and indispensible. Since it it short, do not expect it to be an all-inclusive study of the entire past, present, and future of antitrust law. It is simple, straightforward logic that is often missing when analyzing complex legal problems - even from most economic work in the field.
Antitrust: The Case For Repeal looks closely at the Microsoft case and uses it almost allegorically to condemn the entire practice of antitrust law in the United States. He showcases the inherent contradictions, the arbitrary law, and the self-defeating nature of antitrust legislation. His scholarship is impeccable and the writing is smooth. This book should be a tremendous resource for any research done in the field and also excellent intellectual reading for anyone interested in a common-sense approach to antitrust.
