Article by Vice President Dov Rothman, Manager David Toniatti, and Associate Philipp Tillmann, Shortlisted for 2016 Antitrust Writing Award
February 22, 2017
An article by Vice President Dov Rothman, Manager David Toniatti, and Associate Philipp Tillmann, was the top vote-getter from the Steering Committee of Concurrences' 2016 Antitrust Writing Awards as a finalist in this year's economics business article category. The awards program – organized by Concurrences Journal and the George Washington University Competition Law Center – recognizes the best antitrust writing published in academic and professional publications in 2016.
The article, “The Economics of Pass-Through with Production Constraints,” was originally published in the Journal of Competition Law and Economics. In the article, Dr. Rothman and his coauthors show that, depending on the difficulty and cost of making production changes, a firm may not be willing to adjust its level of production in response to small changes in cost. Consequently, a firm may not pass through overcharges resulting from anticompetitive conduct to purchasers downstream in its supply chain.
The Antitrust Writing Awards' Board members will choose one article from among the finalists in each of 10 categories and will announce the winners at a gala awards ceremony on March 28, 2017.
