Public Event 2021

Once a year, the program organizes a public event. We invite guest speakers from the US and Switzerland with the aim of discussing a current political or economic topic from various perspectives.

The panel discussion is open to all members of the University of Basel, students as well as the interested public.

There is an increasing narrative in the popular press and among some academics that antitrust regulators have systematically relaxed existing antitrust law enforcement. This talk challenges this view based on new theoretical and empirical research by the author using U.S. data from 1979 to 2017.

Jeffrey Macher is Professor of Strategy, Economics and Public Policy at Georgetown University. His research concentrates on the economics of technology and innovation, industry structure and competitive strategy. He offers courses in microeconomics, competitive strategy, and the management of technology and innovation. He also is an academic director of Georgetown's Center for Business and Public Policy. At the Faculty of Business and Economics, he teaches the Master's course “Competitive Strategy” from June 28 to July 8 which is part of the Summer School Programme of 2021.
