Should government more aggressively or less aggressively enforce antitrust? Why?

Answer:
Govt.'s should neither be more or less aggressive om enforcing anti-truat. They should be just enforcing anti-trust laws in the proper spirit and law. More aggressive enforcement may lead to disincentive to innovation and scale and scope economies that are good for the consumers ( market). Less aggressive enforcement would mean greater monoploly power emerging and competetion weakening that will hurt consumer/ market interests. What the Govt. should do is to have independent competition commission with pre-specified limits of concentration of selling and buying power for one or a group of entities, including tendencies to form cartel or create artificial trade barriers and keep monitoring activities that undermine competition with a dynamic perspective. However, where the weak competitors are far weaker and less efficient and technologically backward, it is important to help new entrants come up with more efficient technologies rather than curbing the more efficient to grow and protect the weak.
