AAF’s Jennifer Huddleston Discusses the House Judiciary’s Antitrust Report

After more than a year of investigating, the House Judiciary Antitrust Subcommittee majority released its report examining the market dominance of the Big Tech companies — Amazon, Apple, Facebook, and Google — and how their business models affect competition.

AAF’s Director of Technology and Innovation Policy Jennifer Huddleston explains the potential consequences of this report:

The House Judiciary Antitrust Subcommittee’s majority report proposes significant changes to antitrust laws, including a “Glass-Steagall” for Big Tech and a presumptive ban on mergers and acquisitions by today’s dominant platforms. The proposed changes to antitrust law in the report would likely hurt consumers, would not impact only the tech sector, and would set a dangerous precedent for weaponizing antitrust law.

Huddleston has written a number of relevant analyses on antitrust and competition policy recently:
