Big Tech and the Digital Economy

The Moligopoly Scenario

Nicolas Petit

  • Provides a timely analysis of technology as a source of competitive pressure as, across the world, policy makers at all levels of government are currently discussing regulatory reform towards big tech firms
  • Provides an analytical framework that gives a full account of firm behavior under the coexistent forces of monopoly due to relaxed rivalry and oligopoly competition induced by digital technology
  • Considers policy options for novel harms like privacy, fake news, or hate speech in digital markets, suggesting that a careful dosage of regulation, not competition, is the appropriate tool
  • Develops a limited case for an innovative sector specific competition policy in digital markets
