Eisenach, Others Featured on January 16 CATO Panel

WASHINGTON, D.C. - Progress & Freedom Foundation President Jeffrey Eisenach will be a featured participant in a national policy forum on the Microsoft antitrust case, “Closing ‘Windows’ on Antitrust or Opening a New Era of Intervention? Competition Policy after the Microsoft Settlement.” Hosted by the CATO Institute, the forum is scheduled for Wednesday, January 16, 2002, at 11:00 a.m.

Other participants include Robert A. Levy of CATO, Kenneth Starr of Kirkland & Ellis, and Jonathan Zuck of the Association of Competitive Technology. James C. Miller III of Citizens for a Sound Economy will moderate the panel. The CATO Institute is located at 1000 Massachusetts Avenue, NW, in Washington, DC.

Eisenach is PFF’s co-founder and President, and a contributing editor at the American Spectator. He serves on the faculty of the George Mason University Law School, where he teaches a course on the law and economics of the digital revolution. PFF has issued a number of studies on the Microsoft case, applying a traditional economic approach to antitrust in order to evaluate the issues in the case and size-up potential remedies. It published a book on Microsoft edited by Eisenach and PFF Vice President Thomas Lenard, entitled Competition, Innovation, and the Microsoft Monopoly.
