I. Introduction: My subject today will depart a bit from the more traditional antitrust topics generally discussed at Fordham. When I first came to the Federal Trade Commission in 1974, most people viewed antitrust as a sphere of its own, standing in isolation and aloof from the concerns of other disciplines. Indeed, in those days some even thought that linking antitrust analysis with economic thinking was radical and dangerous. That view is now safely behind us, and antitrust policy in recent years has shared the stage with other important policies. In fact, much effort has been devoted to making antitrust and other policies work together. We have made significant progress, for example, in understanding the relationship between the goals of antitrust policy and those of intellectual property protection, both internationally and domestically. In addition, we are beginning to realize that competition and trade policies can and should work in harmony and not in conflict.3 The next policy interface we should examine is the relationship between antitrust and consumer protection. As you might expect, this topic is of significant interest to those at the FTC, given our jurisdiction over both antitrust and consumer protection.4 I may have a unique perspective on the issue, having served as Director of both the Bureau of Consumer Protection and the Bureau of Competition ? although not simultaneously ? during my earlier service at the Commission.
