Product Details


Innovation Matters is a timely and important book that pulls together the latest economic thinking about innovation, takes us far beyond the sterile ArrowSchumpeter debate, and sets out a compelling roadmap for improving antitrust law.”
– A. Douglas Melamed, Professor of the Practice of Law, Stanford Law School

“How should one rethink competition policy in the world of hightech firms? Using a skillful mix of economic reasoning and illuminating case studies, Richard Gilbert explains why the solution is to move towards a reformed antitrust policy: one that also targets mergers that discourage innovation and new entry. This fascinating book is an absolute mustread for all scholars and policy makers interested in innovation and its relationship with market competition and the new hightech economy.”
– Philippe Aghion, Professor at Collège de France and London School of Economics

“There is no better guide for understanding the connection between antitrust enforcement and innovation than the work of Richard Gilbert.”
– The Antitrust Source
