Dominick Armentano: The Case for Repealing Antitrust Laws

Dominick Armentano is Professor Emeritus at the University of Hartford. He holds a Ph.D. in economics from the University of Connecticut and specializes in antitrust studies and economic history. His books include Antitrust and Monopoly: Anatomy of a Policy Failure (1990), Antitrust: The Case for Repeal (2007), and The Political Economy of William Graham Sumner (1966).

In this lecture, Armentano gives an overview of antitrust law in the United States and gives several reasons to explain why he thinks antitrust laws are unnecessary and, in fact, are harmful to American consumers.
