Economist – Antitrust Section - Public Protection Division: Harrisburg (50581280)
This is professional analytical work in the research, analysis, manipulation, interpretation, and presentation of economic information in a section which helps protect the free enterprise system by detecting anti-competitive prices and taking legal action to stop them. Acting as a watchdog to maintain a free and open marketplace, the section brings legal actions to recover overcharges paid by consumers and state agencies as a result of violations of state and federal antitrust laws. The section also reviews and challenges mergers which may result in consumers or state agencies paying higher prices or which may harm Pennsylvania’s economy.
