Big Regulation Coming For Big Tech

Breaking up Big Tech is a 19th-century competition solution to a 21st-century competition problem. There is a better way.

In America, the House Judiciary Committee’s antitrust panel have just completed a 16 month investigation into Amazon, Apple, Google and Facebook, finding that “Big Tech” has “monopoly power” in key business segments and have “abused” their dominance in the marketplace, in a full-throated condemnation of the giants. The panel complains that there is “significant evidence” to show that BigTech’s anticompetitive conduct has hindered innovation, reduced consumer choice and even weakened democracy.
