The American Antitrust Institute, founded in 1998, as an independent, nonprofit organization devoted to promoting competition that protects consumers, businesses, and society works with experts in the law schools, economics departments, business schools, business, consulting, the antitrust bar, government, and the public interest community, to develop positions that reflect clear-headed, informed, and progressive thinking about antitrust and competition policy. Until the formation of the AAI, there was no public interest organization principally dedicated to supporting a more aggressive antitrust agenda.
