Abstract

This paper sought to determine if antitrust enforcement by the FTC is explained by models that explain traditional ouput by regulatory agencies. The study examines different types of antitrust enforcement from the FTC. The results showed that some types of antitrust enforcement fit neatly into Peltzman's model explaining regulatory output, while others are more nuanced and difficult to explain.
