LAW REVIEW ANNUAL SYMPOSIUM
COMPETITION IN THE 21ST CENTURY:
Can Existing Antitrust Laws Govern a 21st-Century Digital Economy?
MARCH 4, 2022
The University of Memphis Law Review will explore whether existing antitrust law is sufficient to govern a 21st-century digital economy. Modern antitrust law in the United States has developed from the original passage of the Sherman Act in 1890 to a system largely focused on protecting the competitive process and increasing consumer welfare. Is this approach adequate for the rapidly changing digital economy of the 21st-century, where some claim that companies like Amazon, Apple, Facebook, and Google are reminiscent of the oil and steel trusts which motivated the original passage of the Sherman Act?
