Wu's New Deal Supplement to "Curse of Bigness"

Timothy Wu, Columbia Law School, has posted material on antitrust policy in the mid-twentieth-century United States cut from The Curse of Bigness: Antitrust in the New Gilded Age and entitled The Curse of Bigness: New Deal Supplement.  It's a synthesis following the conventional periodization of New Deal competition policy, with a substantial discussion of Alcoa.  he writes, "It is meant to be read together with the larger volume, but can also be read separately."
