History of Capitalism: Anti-monopoly Past and Present
Thursday, Jan. 17 | 6 p.m.
Anti-trust has been around for more than a century in the United States, and yet each generation seems to reinvent what it means and how its principles are applied.

Join on Jan. 17 at 6 p.m. in Pugh Hall for a public conversation between experts, who will explore the concept of anti-monopoly from a historical and contemporary perspective. Panelists include Richard John, of Columbia University, Victoria Woeste, of the American Bar Foundation, and Matt Stoller, of Open Markets Institute. Learn more.
