Antitrust laws promote free competition in trade for the benefit of the consumer. Healthy competition leads to lower prices and higher quality products and services. And with antitrust laws in place, there is a check against the formation of monopolies. Today, there are three main laws: the Sherman Act, the Federal Trade Commission Act and the Clayton Act. All three are federal laws. There are also state antitrust laws that are enforced on a state level.
