Dakota Midday: Thomas Horton And Antitrust Law


  How does a Communist country integrate capitalistic ideals into an ancient Confucian culture? USD law professor Thomas Horton joins Midday to discuss China and the implementation of its anti-monopoly laws. Horton highlights the influence of Western innovation, the historic relationships that impact China's trade philosophies, and how the intersection of socialism and capitalism has surfaced in the 2016 U.S. Presidential election.

Thomas Horton is a former lead trial attorney at the U.S. Department of Justice. He is now a professor and Heidepriem Trial Advocacy Fellow at the USD School of Law. On June 7, he read testimony before the House Subcommittee on Regulatory Reform, Commercial and Antitrust Law at the U.S. House of Representatives.
