Come listen to national authorities who bring a deep understanding of what's happening and why we might be concerned, as well as an appreciation of the remedies that are needed. Our guests include:

  • Roger Feldman, PhD, former Blue Cross Professor of Health Insurance and former Professor of Economics at the University of Minnesota
  • Deborah Haas-Wilson, PhD, MA (invited), Marilyn Carlson Nelson Professor of Economics, Smith College
  • Monica Noether, PhD, Vice President, Charles River Associates
  • Robert Coulam, PhD, JD, Moderator, Professor of Practice, Simmons University School of Business

Our guests are experienced researchers who also have worked on the front lines of antitrust enforcement. You will hear an authoritative discussion of what we know and what we can do about it!
