ICLE Affiliate Nicolas Petit Joins James Pethokoukis on the Political Economy Podcast

Nicolas Petit, argues against this alarmist case against the tech titans. Drawing from his 2016 paper, “Technology Giants, the Moligopoly Hypothesis and Holistic Competition: A Primer,” as well as new research from a forthcoming book, Petit makes the argument these “Frightful Five” firms engage in cutthroat competition with one another, benefiting the economy as a whole — and government regulation against these companies is premature.

Nicolas Petit is a visiting fellow at Stanford University’s Hoover Institution, a professor of law at the University of Liege in Belgium, a research professor with the University of South Australia, and an expert in antitrust and its applications to the digital economy.
