    Therefore, I contend that, while it is good to attack antitrust laws on the basis of economic efficiency, it is not the best argument. Like F.A. Hayek’s "knowledge" argument against socialism, it is, at best, a second line of defense. Antitrust laws are bad—and inefficient—because they are egregious violations of private property.   In the same era, federal courts also struck down publicly legislated forms of market coordination such as wage-and-hour laws on the grounds that they violated individual freedom of contract.

But for these laws, it is said, we should be plagued with cartelization as in Great Britain, Germany, or France.   As Justice Breyer points out in his dissent, America’s antitrust laws represent a historic compromise between pure laissez-faire capitalism and state control of the economy.
