Conference on the 50th Anniversary of United States v. Philadelphia National Bank: The Past, Present, and Future of Merger Law
Friday, November 15, 2013, 8:30-6:00pm
Abstract: In 1963 the Supreme Court decided United States v. Philadelphia National Bank. This was only the Court’s second decision under the amended Section 7 of the Clayton Act. This conference will examine the Court’s decision in PNB then, as it has developed since (both in terms of court decisions and economic thinking in the United States and elsewhere), and how it might yet develop in the future. The Supreme Court has not decided a substantive Section 7 case since 1974. The papers presented at this conference will hopefully contribute to an understanding of Section 7 that will prove useful should such a case come before the Court in the near future.
