Join us for a virtual discussion with Senator Amy Klobuchar about her new book: "Antitrust: Taking on Monopoly Power from the Gilded Age to the Digital Age."
“The effects of monopoly power can be felt everywhere raising all sorts of questions for the American economy. Why do farmers pay so much for seeds and fertilizer? Why is health care so expensive? And why are so few incentives in place for big tech companies to protect your private information? If you haven’t wondered about any of this, you need to. And if you have, you should also start thinking long and hard about the state of the nation’s antitrust laws.”--from "Antitrust"
Senator Amy Klobuchar's "Antitrust" is a look at the history of American monopolies, from Standard Oil and Bell to today's tech giants and Big Pharma, their effects on innovation, entrepreneurship, and consumer pricing, and the fights to regulate and rein them in. She suggests legislative proposals that would strengthen our current antitrust laws and help pave the way for their enforcement.
This event will feature a discussion with the Senator about the book followed by a Q&A session.
