'Goliath' Explores The History Of Concentrated Power & The Struggle Between Monopoly & Democracy

Oct 23, 2019


On this edition of Your Call, we discuss Matt Stoller’s new book Goliath: The 100-Year War Between Monopoly Power and Democracy.

He argues that concentrated economic power threatens democracy and that big tech companies like Amazon, Google and Facebook are today’s new monopolists. How much power do these monopolies really have? What will it take to enforce antitrust laws? What else can we do to take on concentrated power?

Matt Stoller, author of Goliath: The 100-Year War Between Monopoly Power and Democracy and Fellow at the Open Markets Institute
