We rarely deal with the wRiting part of the blog? I am curious what people are actually working on when they are not running or rehabbing.
To get the ball rolling, my main project is my co-authored article on "Antitrust's Democracy Deficit" with Harry First of NYU. We are looking at the evolving nature of antitrust into a technocracy and critiquing it from the point of view of transparency and democratic accountability. We contrast this trend in the US with the opposite trend in the EU where the modernization effort has empowered national competition authorities, national courts, and to a lesser extent private plaintiffs to make competition enforcement more transparent and closer to the people affected by it. Finally, we look at the ideological underpinning of the movement towards technocracy in the US and how many advocates are in fact arguing for a laissez faire approach to market regulation that cannot be justified by the text, intent, history or interpretation of the US antitrust statutes.
We have presented this at a conference on the goals of antitrust at GW law school in October and will be publishing it in the Fordham Law Review. Suddenly, the January 14th deadline for final manuscripts doesn't seem that far away.
I have too many other smaller projects and administrative reports due to even begin to summarize those but look forward to hearing about the big ticket items on your plate. Plus there is grading looming on the horizon.
And before I forget, Happy Thanksgiving to all, even those bloggers in countries with different traditions this time of year.
