Example text

But Nixon was too preoccupied with McLaren's independent behavior in the ITT case to sit silently and endure for long Schultz's lecture on Chicago School economics. P ... the problem is McLaren's a nice little fellow who's a good little antitrust lawyer out in Chicago. Now he comes in and all those bright little bastards that worked for the Antitrust Department for years and years and years and who hate business with a passion ... have taken him over. That was all right fifty years ago. Fifty years ago maybe it was a good thing for this country.

There is also much loose talk about the need for larger American corporations so that they can compete more effectively in foreign markets. Rather than attempt to review all the critics, I shall examine in some detail the criticisms raised by Lester C. Thurow, Professor of Economics and Management at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. I do so not out of personal malice. Professor Thurow has excellent academic credentials in his field of specialization, and I understand he is a pleasant and engaging young man.

It is a mistake to assume the new attack on antitrust flowered from seeds only recently planted. It germinated two decades ago and has been growing continuously ever since. The Chicago School of economics has long provided the main intellectual resources for attacking the antitrust laws and their enforcement. But the views from Chicago did not have great influence on public policy until they became firmly implanted at a number of other universities, (for example, UCLA, Virginia, Rochester, and Texas A&M) and when they became generously endowed by industrial interests seeking intellectual legitimization of their objectives.
