Agree To Disagree: Should Washington Break Up Big Tech

After a 13-month investigation that yielded millions of documents and hundreds of hours of interviews, Congress called the chief executives from Amazon, Apple, Facebook, and Google to testify. And they did. In the historic hearing, the tech titans defended their companies against claims that they’re running afoul of antitrust law and using their market power to crush competition, amass data, and drive their own profits. As the internet giants face more probes from the FCC, DOJ, and a host of state attorneys general, some are calling this big tech’s “big tobacco moment.” But are these companies really too large? In this episode of “Agree to Disagree,” we bring two experts in antitrust and digital technologies to discuss whether Washington should break up big tech.
