Joshua Wright at FTC Hearing #1: The Current Landscape of Competition and Privacy Law and Policy

ICLE Senior Scholar Joshua Wright participated in the FTC’s Hearing #1: The Current Landscape of Competition and Privacy Law and Policy on the panel, Has the US Economy Become More Concentrated and Less Competitive: A Review of the Data.

The Federal Trade Commission began its Hearings on Competition and Consumer Protection in the 21st Century with a full-day session, co-sponsored with and held at the Georgetown University Law Center, on September 13, 2018.

The Georgetown event was the first in a series of hearings that will examine whether broad-based changes in the economy, evolving business practices, new technologies, or international developments might require adjustments to competition and consumer protection enforcement priorities of the Commission. Many sessions will conclude with an opportunity for those attending the event in-person to submit questions to the participants. These public events, in conjunction with the public comment process, will provide the FTC with a broad and diverse range of viewpoints and stimulate evaluation of key enforcement and policy issues.
