New Podcast Episode: Antitrust, the Consumer Welfare Standard, and Big Tech

The Consumer Welfare Standard (CWS) has been the bedrock of U.S. antitrust law for the past several decades.

Jennifer Huddleston, the Director of Technology and Innovation Policy at the American Action Forum, sits down with Kris Pusok to discuss these important questions.
