Winners, Losers & Microsoft: Competition and Antitrust in High Technology (Independent Studies in Political Economy)
Liebowitz (economics, U. of Texas-Dallas) and Margolis (economics, North Carolina State U.) investigate whether the build-a-better-mousetrap style of competition has been replaced with path-dependence, which can lock in inferior products and lock out innovative newcomers. They argue that competitive advantage in high technology is short-lived, and that the best way to promote competition and innovation is to trust free-market entrepreneurs rather than take antitrust action.
