Tim Wu - The Curse of Bigness: Antitrust in the New Gilded Age

Upcoming Event
Saturday, November 17, 2018 - 1:00pm to 2:00pm

In this analysis of digital age oligopolies, Wu, the author of The Attention Merchants, a member of President Obama's National Economic Council, and, not least, the man who coined the phrase “net neutrality,” looks at how the dominance of a few large companies has strained the national economy and subverted capitalism’s promise to create broad-based wealth, and proposes ways to bring the system back to a human scale. A century ago, Justice Louis Brandeis described the social and economic problems of his time as deriving from the “Curse of Bigness”; now, with Big Pharma, Big Tech, and corporations “too big to fail” becoming everyday realities, we may face that curse again.
