Dynamic Antitrust Discussion Series: “House Report on Big Tech”

Public Utility Research Center Director and Gunter Professor Mark Jamison discussed the House Report on Competition in the Digital Markets with Federal Trade Commissioner Christine Wilson (BA ’91) and Aurelien Portuese, director of antitrust and innovation policy at the Information Technology & Innovation Foundation (ITIF).

The House report focuses on a handful of tech giants to draw policy recommendations about antitrust enforcement. One of the most dramatic policy recommendations of the report is the structural separation of digital platforms – namely, the break-up of tech giants such as Google, Facebook, Amazon, and Apple. What are the justifications for such a proposal and what are the possibilities for these break-ups to be part of foreseeable legislative changes?

See what Jamison and Wilson have to say in this panel discussion.
