Yesterday, the majority staff at the House Judiciary Committee released a report on its investigation of competition in the digital market, recommending major changes to our longstanding antitrust laws.
The following is a statement by Dr. Krisztina Pusok, Director of Policy and Research at the American Consumer Institute:
“The newly released 449-page antitrust report by the House Majority Judiciary Committee is clearly not bipartisan in its misguided recommendations to put aside a half-century of jurisprudence in order to break up Big Tech. This does NOT benefit at all consumers. It is detrimental to consumers to advocate for a return to the old paradigm of more than a half-century ago that ignored consumer interests to achieve broader ideological and social objectives.”
