Sherman Act cases, especially under section 2, are involved, expensive and time-consuming, requiring the resolution of issues in which law and economics have become inseparably interrelated. When assigned to the United Shoe Machinery case Judge Wyzanski, recognizing the relationship of economic criteria to the public policy embodied in the antitrust laws and the necessarily "economic" judgment that he would render, sought the assistance of a trained economist. Thus, Carl Kaysen, Harvard economist, became a "law clerk." His analysis of the principal issues of the case forms the subject matter of this book, Volume 99 in the Harvard Economic Studies.
