Tomorrow - FTC Public Hearing about Non-Competes

For the first time ever, the Federal Trade Commission is holding tomorrow a public event about non-competes. I am honored and excited to be the first speaker of the day, setting the agenda for an economic and policy discussion about whether the FTC should pass a rule that limits non-competes as an unfair method of competition. Last year I helped draft a petition to the FTC calling for such a rule and it is very rewarding to see the government responding. Other speakers of the day include several FTC commissioners, professors Evan Starr, Eric Posner, Howard Shelanski, and William E. Kovacic (who was the FTC chairman under the Bush admin). The event will be livestreamed so tune in! Here is the agenda.
