FTC and the professions



The Federal Trade Commission is one of the very few cops on the beat keeping tabs on the legal profession's propensity for anti-competitive and deceptive fee practices, class action collusion and so forth. From the American Antitrust Institute, Northeastern U. economist John Kwoka has a history of the commission's 25 years of involvement in oversight of competition in the professions. The paper (PDF) was presented at the commission's September symposium (via David Giacalone).
