Town Hall: Regulators Wrong on Big Tech Benefits

Simply assuming that bunding is bad is simply erroneous. This commentary shows that tech companies are bundling services and it is resulting in tens of billions of dollars of benefits to consumers. All the while, regulators want to end the bundling of online services and features, claiming (inaccurately) that this violates antitrust laws.

Unless policymakers and regulators are willing to measure the economic costs and benefits that these restrictive actions would impose on consumer welfare, they should refrain from antitrust actions that would  prevent online sales platforms from bundling their services. Simply put, consumers should not be made worse off by these remedies.
