Free Lunch Podcast Episode 45 – Big Tech, Competition, and Antitrust Enforcement

Listen to the Podcast

Senator Elizabeth Warren recently claimed that big tech companies like Amazon, Google, and Facebook have grown into monopolies that make it effectively impossible for smaller competitors to gain a foothold in the market. As a potential fix, she proposed that the government should unwind past anti-competitive mergers. There is fierce debate about governmental oversight of big tech companies and the proper role of the federal government in promoting consumer welfare and market competition. In this episode of the Free Lunch Podcast, Neil Chilson and Charlotte Slaiman will explore the surrounding debate.
