The FTC’s proposed ban on noncompete agreements (and other “de facto” noncompetes such as overly broad nondisclosure agreements) relies in large part on the research done by University of Maryland’s Robert H. Smith School of Business Professor Evan Starr — one of the leading scholars in the field.

Join Ben, Russell and me as we talk with Professor Starr about the strengths and weakness of his research, any key insights that he has into other research in the field, and an important working paper of HEC Paris Professor Jessica JeffersThe Impact of Restricting Labor Mobility on Corporate Investment and Entrepreneurship.

So, come join us on Spotify or Apple Podcasts. Or, if you’re just looking for the feed, it’s here: Fairly Competing RSS feed.
