In this On-Topic issue we have invited prominent competition lawyers and economists – from academic, judicial, enforcement and practice sides of the profession – to discuss a book by two leading antitrust thinkers. The book ’Competition Overdose: How Free Market Mythology Transformed Us from Citizen Kings to Market Servants’ by Maurice E. Stucke and Ariel Ezrachi makes a sad – though not indeed fatal – diagnosis to some axiomatic values and practices dominating antitrust as well as the overall neoliberal agenda over the previous decades. The book has generated remarkable and diverse attention in the discipline and far beyond. All contributors were invited to reflect not only on the book but also on each other’s pieces. This makes the genre of the volume closer to a classical symposium.
