Jerry Ellig is Senior Research Fellow at the Mercatus Center. He was Deputy Director of the Office of Policy Planning at the Federal Trade Commission between 2001 and 2003.

He is skeptical of many government regulations. He believes that regulation is justified when there is systematic evidence that a market failure exists and that the proposed regulatory remedy will actually fix the problem. In 2001, he edited a book featuring multiple scholars' views on the relationship between new, dynamic theories of competition and antitrust policy. (Dynamic Competition and Public Policy, Cambridge University Press.)
