Marshall Steinbaum on the path forward in antitrust
Steinbaum is a consulting expert on the antitrust case against Uber and Lyft
It’s been a big week for antitrust in Oversharing! We’ve talked about the antitrust case against Uber and Lyft and the antitrust case against food delivery platforms. To round it all off, I’m delighted to have another conversation with Marshall Steinbaum, assistant professor of economics at the University of Utah and a consulting expert on the ride-hail antitrust litigation. We talked about the two lawsuits, whether anticompetitive practices like those alleged in the complaints might also be contributing to inflation, and why we may be in a “recoupment phase” of predatory pricing.
