Abstract We show that the types of entry barriers relevant for antitrust cases depend on and vary with the welfare criterion according to which the potential social gains from entry are being evaluated. In this respect the confusion in antitrust cases around the concept of “entry barriers” primarily reflects an absence of a commonly agreed upon objective func-tion for competition policy rather than a failure to reach a consensus on how to define entry barriers.
