“Competition is important, but historically, antitrust, or at least for the last 40 or 50 years, it hasn’t looked at competition as the only goal. Consumer welfare has been the main goal. If anti-competitive behavior isn’t harming consumer welfare, then it has not been seen as an appropriate matter for antitrust enforcement… a lot of what you have now is people wanting to turn away from this consumer harm model… they think that competition per se needs to be the goal of antitrust enforcement.
