Big tech and antitrust laws

Big tech and antitrust laws

2020-11-21

With large companies having majority shares in many consumer product markets, antitrust regulation may be difficult to enforce in emerging digital platforms.  Curran (2016) argues that antitrust laws do not provide adequate protection from the increased size of corporations nor increase wealth distribution.  Basu (2019) explains that the technological revolution makes it more difficult for traditional laws to apply to product and labour markets.  McAfee, Mialon, and Mialon (2005) suggest a model for analyzing conditions for the effects of competitiveness for antitrust enforcement.

Ethics in management may be a formidable component of alleviating corruption in governance.  Puiu and Ogarca (2015) describe a lack of implementation of ethics management to be a component leading to corruption.  Herrington and Coduras (2019) describe corruption as a component inhibiting entrepreneurial opportunities for small businesses.  Oye (2013) discusses ways that information communication technologies can curtail corruption in government such as by publicizing information, providing monitoring, and sharing data.  Omar Bali (2018) studies ways that technology can be implemented to combat corruption by reducing nepotism, preventing abuse, increasing productivity, and increasing justice.  Subramanyam and Dasaraju (2014) suggest detailed disclosure requirements to improve transparency in corporate governance.

Ceresia and Mendola (2019) explain how perceptions of a lack of enforcement of corrupt activities can impact entrepreneurial activity.  Liu (2016) discusses measures that can reduce corruption such as decentralizing organizations, increasing competition, providing information, extending terms of local officials, and increasing public sector salaries.  Boles (2014) lists examples of corruption as fraud, money laundering, illegal cartels, misstating financial statements, bribery, and exacting undue influence.  Bouchard, Kohler, Orbinski, and Howard (2012) explain that corruption in health care may reduce access to adequate health services.
