This Note will review the doctrines and principles which now guide the enforcement of United States antitrust laws in foreign commerce. It will then argue that the United States must choose between two alternative courses of action when responding to the passage of the PTIA. On the one hand, the United States could choose to maintain the status quo by endorsing existing antitrust laws and doctrines applicable to foreign commerce. On the other hand, the United States could respond by reexamining existing laws and considering changes in their scope, function, and and application in the field of foreign commerce. Whichever option is selected, it will have far-reaching political, economic, and legal ramifications.
