Abstract

When the US Department of Justice challenges the acquisition of Clinton Corn Processing by the agribusiness giant Archer-Daniels-Midland Company, US Federal District Judge Harold Vietor must rule as to whether the merger violates antitrust law. This case addresses both conventional and unconventional issues of merger adjudication under the US federal antitrust laws. The problem of market definition is posed unusually sharply, as is the tradeoff between price-raising effects and merger- related efficiencies.
