Dan Rubinfeld, senior consultant at Compass Lexecon and professor at the University of California, Berkley, agreed, saying that there is no firm economic foundation for the agencies to use the 35 per cent market share threshold when screening mergers. “I’m hoping that screen will disappear in the revision of the guidelines.” Rubinfeld said.
