Logan Breed, Chuck Loughlin, Edith Ramirez, Eric Richard Sega, Jill Ottenberg US Competition Regulation: A survey of President Biden’s Executive Order on Promoting Competition in the American Economy


It has been more than two years since President Biden signed a far-reaching, industry-spanning Executive Order on Promoting Competition in the American Economy.

The Executive Order reflects the administration’s intense focus on concentration as a serious risk to the U.S. economy, and an assumption that this issue resonates broadly for Americans and is not just a niche area of concern for the Department of Justice’s Antitrust Division (DOJ) and the Federal Trade Commission (FTC). The Executive Order has prompted information-sharing, training, and various other collaborative efforts across agencies that in the past may have had little reason to interact on this issue.
