Topic 2:

Listen to this podcast. Planet Money’s three-part podcast on antitrust policy (Links to an external site.) as well as the Tim Wu book (Master Switch) highlights the question of whether — and how — it is time to break up the ICT giants, such as Facebook, Google, and Amazon”

What would be the rationale for such breakups — the traditional standard focused on market competition, or the Bork-ian standard of consumer welfare? What are the alternatives to antitrust action, e.g. more regulation, treating those companies as utilities, or Public Goods? Write the reaction of the podcast.
