What will President Biden’s competition policy be? He faces immediate antitrust issues, from ongoing lawsuits against market-leading Internet platforms to calls for legislative overhauls of foundational laws like Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act. After the Trump administration, a tumultuous four years in which antitrust was characterized by regular and dramatic changes of attitudes toward tech companies, will Biden now resist the temptation of insisting on antitrust populism? Or will he instead embed antitrust in an innovation policy?
ITIF and Competition Policy International hosted the first in a series of discussions on “dynamic antitrust,” as Aurelien Portuese, ITIF’s director of antitrust and innovation policy, sits down with leading scholars and antitrust enforcers in Washington, Brussels, and elsewhere to discuss the path forward in making antitrust a foundation for innovation.
