Antitrust and other regulatory authorities around the world are busily assessing potential enforcement actions against big digital platforms, including among others Google, Facebook, and Amazon. The Mercatus Center will host a panel of leading antitrust scholars, regulators, and practitioners to address some timely questions about digital platforms:
- Should governments establish regulations that sets clear rules of conduct for digital platforms?
- Can existing “consumer welfare” standards guiding antitrust enforcement effectively curb abuses by digital platforms?
- Are proposals to heighten antitrust prohibitions and reverse antitrust burdens of proof de facto regulation?
Our panel of antitrust scholars will debate these hot topics.
Zoom is a federally approved platform.
