The Federalism Project
Publications Events

The AEI Federalism Project conducts and sponsors original research on American federalism, with particular emphasis on federal and state business regulation, legal developments and the role of the courts, and the prospects for rehabilitating a constitutional federalism that puts states in competition for productive citizens and businesses. Through its AG Watch, the Federalism Project monitors and comments on the increasingly active role of state attorneys general.

The AEI Federalism Project disseminates its research results and opinions through frequent conferences and other public events; through the Federalism Outlook, a newsletter written by the Project’s Director, Michael S Greve; through its website; and through books and publications in scholarly journals.

Competition Laws In Conflict: Antitrust Jurisdiction in the Global Economy

by Richard A. Epstein & Michael S Greve, eds. (May 2004)

Competition Laws In Conflict: Antitrust Jurisdiction in the Global EconomySeemingly arcane questions of jurisdiction have emerged as a massive problem in antitrust law. When business activities stretch across state and national borders, which laws do companies have to comply with? And what happens when multiple suits over the same alleged actions are brought in multiple courts under differing standards? Instead of creating new avenues of competition, globalization has produced a veritable antitrust proliferation, increasing the chances of protectionist policies and exploitative practices. In Competition Laws in Conflict, leading experts explore routes to an improved institutional design for antitrust law in the national and international contexts.
