Kimberly Justice and I have written an article arguing that it is time for an “Antitrust Whistleblower Statute.” The article was published in Global Competition Review, but is behind a paid firewall (here). Kimberly and I will be expanding on this idea in Cartel Capers blog posts over the next two weeks. The first installment will be on Monday and explain why cartels are a great pond to be fishing in for informants, but a little “whistleblower” bait is needed. Other topics will include:
1) An evaluation of the objections to an antitrust whistleblower statute;
2) A survey of whistleblower related incentives offered by foreign competition agencies;
3) A preview of what an antitrust whistleblower statute should look like; and
4) If we receive comments/feedback, we’d like to collect and post them together.
Stay tuned. Thanks for reading.
