Brattle Principal Renée Duplantis will join a Macdonald-Laurier Institute webinar, “Monopoly Games: Moving Past Populist Rhetoric on ‘Big Digital’ to a Competition Policy for Post-Pandemic Growth,” on June 10 at 8:00 a.m. (PT) | 11:00 a.m. (ET).

The increased reliance on digital services during the COVID-19 pandemic has brought greater attention to the outsized role of certain companies – and, in turn, to increased calls for regulations and antitrust measures to curb the influence of the likes of Amazon and Facebook. Panelists will examine the potentially anti-competitive behavior of major digital players, and will discuss the nuanced competition policy approach that will need to be taken towards technology and digital services in a fast-changing, post-pandemic world.
