In this provocative new work, a distinguished group of policymakers, legal scholars, and economists challenge the prevailing view that antitrust legislation is no longer relevant, arguing instead that antitrust, progressively construed and adapted to today's economic realties, remains the most promising national economic policy for this country. Their papers address a range of topics, including the impact of underenforcement of antitrust law in the 1980s, the implications of global markets and competition, theoretical advances, and the future of antitrust.

Based on archival research and interviews with leading participants in the movement, Masters of the Universe traces the ascendancy of neoliberalism from the academy of interwar Europe to supremacy under Reagan and Thatcher and in the decades since. Daniel Stedman Jones argues that there was nothing inevitable about the victory of free-market politics. Far from being the story of the simple triumph of right-wing ideas, the neoliberal breakthrough was contingent on the economic crises of the 1970s and the acceptance of the need for new policies by the political left. This edition includes a new foreword in which the author addresses the relationship between intellectual history and the history of politics and policy. Fascinating, important, and timely, this is a book for anyone who wants to understand the history behind the Anglo-American love affair with the free market, as well as the origins of the current economic crisis.
