Winners, Losers & Microsoft Competition and Antitrust in High Technology

by Stan J. Liebowitz, Stephen E. Margolis, Jack Hirshleifer

Winners, Losers & Microsoft Competition and Antitrust in High Technology Synopsis

Few issues in high technology are as divisive as the current debate over competition, innovation, and antitrust. Analyzing famous examples of economic lock-in by dominant corporations of supposedly inferior products, this book makes the case that free markets in high technology industry deliver better products to consumers, at lower prices, without government intervention. This publication's careful scholarship, well-founded hypotheses, and refutations of previously accepted theories-extending far beyond the Microsoft case-make this publication a vital piece of understanding for the future of technology and economics.

Winners, Losers & Microsoft Competition and Antitrust in High Technology Press Reviews

It does indeed exhibit a very high caliber of scholarship, addresses the key questions posed by the proponents of anti-competitive 'lock-in,' and bases its conclusions on a wealth of new empirical evidence. -William F. Shughart II, Barnard Distinguished Professor of Economics, University of Mississippi
