Amicus Brief: U.S. v. United States Sugar Corporation, et. al
INTEREST OF AMICUS
American Economic Liberties Project (“AELP”) is an independent nonprofit organization that works to promote competition, combat monopolistic corporations, and advance economic liberty for all. AELP organizes and employs a diverse set of leading policy experts in areas impacted by concentrated power that include community development, the airline industry, international trade, and national security. It advocates for policies that address today’s crisis of concentration through legislative efforts and public policy debates. AELP submits this amicus brief because the antitrust laws cannot protect competition if merger challenges supported by clear evidence of incipient consolidation are rejected based on convoluted and unrealistic market definitions.
All parties consent to the filing of this amicus brief. No counsel for a party has authored this brief in whole or in part, and no party, party’s counsel, or any other person—other than amicus curiae or its counsel—has contributed money that was intended to fund preparing or submitting this brief.
