Associate Attorney General Vanita Gupta on Tuesday framed the Biden administration’s focus on aggressive antitrust enforcement in terms of economic justice, decrying the consolidation of key sectors of the economy as harmful to consumers and workers alike.

Gupta, whose portfolio includes oversight of the antitrust division of the U.S. Department of Justice, told a virtual audience at Georgetown Law’s Global Antitrust Enforcement Symposium that antitrust has transformed from a “narrow, highly technical field” to a “key part of our national dialogue.”
