Sandeep Vaheesan featured on Panel Discussion: “Has the COVID-19 Pandemic Changed the Way We Should Think About Antitrust Law?”

In a webinar organized by COSAL and Rust Consulting and moderated by Hal Singer, Sandeep Vaheesan, along with OMI Academic Advisory Board Member Sanjukta Paul and Marshall Steinbaum, discussed how weak anti-merger law contributed to the loss of critical reserve capacity in health care and other sectors and how COVID-19 has further enhanced the power of Amazon and food delivery platforms. In the conversation over how to revive antitrust as an antimonopoly tool, he made the case for the merger moratorium proposed by Rep. Ocasio-Cortez, Sen. Warren, and other Congressional progressives and explained that criticisms of the moratorium rest on false assumptions and discredited theories.
