Crisis of Democracy: Monopoly Power, From Big Tech to China—Matt Stoller | American Thought Leaders

2020-02-10 15:52
In the eyes of Open Markets Institute fellow Matt Stoller, how has the rise of monopolies and corporate centralization in America led to a crisis of democracy? How did government policy contribute to this? And, how has the Chinese Communist Party used monopoly power to its advantage against the U.S., using companies like Huawei? This is American Thought Leaders 🇺🇸, and I’m Jan Jekielek. In this episode, we'll sit down with Matt Stoller, author of “Goliath: The Hundred Year War Between Monopoly Power and Democracy.” Previously, he was a Senior Policy Advisor and Budget Analyst to the Senate Budget Committee, and he also worked in the U.S. House of Representatives on Dodd-Frank, the Federal Reserve, and the foreclosure crisis.
