Overview

Antitrust Abuse in the New Economy: The Microsoft Case

Gordon looks at the 1999 case of U.S. et al. v. Microsoft. He contends that the case is one in which unsound government arguments won over a much more coherent, more valid Microsoft defense. In this volume, Gordon reviews the critical economic principles upon which both sides built their arguments. The author is Professor Emeritus of mineral economics at Pennsylvania State University.
