The Utah Statement

Commentary: What is the Utah Statement? Critics of antitrust have been tough to pin down, they have often spoken in grand and emotionally loaded terms, leveled vague criticisms, all while being cagey about what they really want. Last year, following an antitrust conference in Utah last year, they finally responded with clarity over what they seek to accomplish. One can draw a straight line from this statement to the House staff antitrust report released nearly a year later. The Utah Statement lays out the path to dangerously overhaul America’s antitrust laws, seeking to remove the important role of economic analysis in antitrust enforcement and incorporate multiple political and regulatory goals into antitrust. This is essentially a “Swiss-Army” knife approach to a field that has succeeded largely because it is carefully focused on the single over-arching goal of protecting the dynamic competitive process.
