Introduction to the Antitrust & Consumer Protection Working Group


Hi, I’m Josh Wright, Chairman of the Antitrust
& Consumer Protection group of the Regulatory Transparency Project with the Federalist Society. The Antitrust & Consumer Protection group
is interested in issues involving both substantive and procedural antitrust and consumer protection
law that govern the United States. Agencies like the Federal Trade Commission,
the Antitrust Division of the Department of Justice, and the CFPB are critical parts of
the modern administrative state. Consumer protection and antitrust law govern
regulations that impact consumers in our everyday lives. Everything from the prices of the food we
purchase in the supermarket, the goods and services, that we purchase at retail,
our access to healthcare through services like telemedicine or nurse practitioners. Antitrust and consumer protection sets the table for the interaction that consumers have in the marketplace. We in the Antitrust & Consumer Protection
group are interested in studying the impact of those laws and regulations, and how we
can improve the performance of the Federal Trade Commission and the Antitrust Division
to offer a better rate of return for consumers and get rid of some of the burdensome regulations
that result in higher prices. If you’re interested in any of the work that
the Antitrust & Consumer Protection group is doing or the Regulatory Transparency Project
in general, you can follow us at RegProject.org or on LinkedIn, Facebook, and Twitter.
