With a focus on issues related to marketplace competition and regulation, UC Berkeley’s Competition Policy Center bridges the gap between academic analysis and policy formation, with an eye toward shaping U.S. competition policy.
Focused on a variety of issues related to marketplace competition and regulation, Berkeley’s Competition Policy Center bridges the gap between academic analysis and policy formation. The CPC was formed to harness the expertise of Berkeley faculty, who have played an extraordinary role in shaping U.S. competition policy over the past decade.
Berkeley has a wealth of faculty expertise and experience in this area, including five former Deputy Assistant Attorneys General for Antitrust at the U.S. Department of Justice: as well as former FCC Chief Economists and leaders at the Federal Trade Commission and President’s Council of Economic Advisers. To facilitate research and transmit their results, the CPC has initiated an on-line working paper series and sponsors conferences on a regular basis.
