Efficiencies are offered as the justification for many mergers. At the same time,
mergers can raise antitrust concerns. Consequently, understanding the role of
efficiencies in modern merger analysis is especially important. The purpose of
this Georgetown on the Hill event is to identify both existing and emerging debates regarding the role that efficiencies should play in merger analysis.
