This casebook supplement is, in itself, a compendium of modern antitrust law. It presents or summarizes the ten U.S. Supreme Court antitrust cases decided since Trinko in 2004, which span almost all areas of antitrust law from resale price maintenance and tying to predatory buying, price-squeezing, joint ventures, the single-entity doctrine, extraterritorial jurisdiction, and the antitrust/regulation interface. As well, it presents contemporary merger and monopoly analysis, merger guideline revisions, the FTC's revitalization of its unfairness jurisdiction, and challenges to reverse payment pharmaceutical settlements, and it contains sufficient substantive excerpts from the European Microsoft case to allow an appreciation of the US/EU fault lines.

This text organizes cases over four periods: a 25-year period from 1890 to 1914, in which most of today's issues were foreshadowed; a 25-year period from 1915 to 1939, in which the 'rule of reason' forced courts to investigate the actual consequences of business practices; a 35-year period from 1940 to 1975, in which the per se rule and industry concentration provided the predominant models for analysis; and the modern period of now almost 40 years, which is a synthesis of the second and third periods. The new Fifth Edition retains enough of the first three periods to provide important intellectual and economic context, but it expands upon, even more fully, the recent developments of antitrust policy. All major Supreme Court authority is covered, including the 2013 Actavis 'reverse payments' and Phoebe Putney 'hospital regulation' cases, as well as the 2010 Merger Guidelines and developments in lower court treatment of tying, bundled pricing and mergers.

This book addresses the lack of binding multi-lateral international agreement on cartels, through analysis of trials and failures. It also suggests strategic approaches to overcome current standstills. In addition, the book contrasts international agreement on cartels with inter-governmental commodity agreement which has been developed separately through international law. Through this project, the author puts forth that successful international law on cartels needs to reflect the interests and arguments of developing countries.
