Event Video – Standard Oil to Microsoft: Monopolization Cases and Their Effect on Consumers


Antitrust is likely to be a key focus of the new administration. But before considering antitrust with respect to big tech, it is important to understand previous cases and what lessons they might contain. TPI recently hosted a panel looking back at antitrust, and drawing conclusions about what may happen with future big tech regulation.
Panelist participants included:
  • Robert Crandall, Adjunct Senior Fellow, Technology Policy Institute
  • Michael Katz, Professor Emeritus, University of California, Berkeley Haas School of Business and Department of Economics and Sarin Chair in Strategy and Leadership
  • Diana Moss, President, American Antitrust Institute
  • Randal Picker, James Parker Hall Distinguished Service Professor, University of Chicago Law School
  • Thomas Lenard (moderator), President Emeritus and Senior Fellow, Technology Policy Institute
