Conservatives Shouldn't Seek Common Cause with the Left on Antitrust

After yet another Congressional hearing on antitrust enforcement against big tech, it is being widely reported that a forthcoming report by Democrats on the Subcommittee on Antitrust will recommend breaking up several digital economy titans. This seemed inevitable; Chairman Cicilline (D-R.I.)’s remarks during the previous hearing, and for years prior, make clear that the desire to break up Big Tech was not contingent upon evidence gathered from hearings. What is disturbing from a conservative standpoint is the possibility that some Republicans are likely to at least partially join those calls.

Antitrust is Not the Remedy to Conservative Concerns about Big Tech

The Senate Judiciary Subcommittee on Antitrust, Consumer Policy, and Consumer Rights is meeting this week to discuss whether Google has engaged in anti-competitive business practices through its domination of the online advertising market. Led by Subcommittee Chairman Mike Lee (R-Utah), this hearing should have less of the circus atmosphere than last month’s House hearing on antitrust and big tech, which seemed more like an excuse for both parties to yell at Silicon Valley’s most powerful CEOs for soundbites.

FreedomWorks and Committee to Unleash Prosperity Author Brief Warning Congress Not to Abuse Antitrust

WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Ahead of today’s House Subcommittee on Antitrust hearing on “online platforms and market power,” FreedomWorks and the Committee to Unleash Prosperity sent a joint brief to Congress on how essential U.S. dominance in the digital economy is to American prosperity, and why using antitrust to break up tech giants would be a terrible mistake.

In Government We Antitrust

The American economy produces roughly $18 trillion worth of goods and services every year as firms compete to provide consumers the goods and services they demand. But over time, the government has come to play a much larger role in the economy, imposing regulations that cost the economy over $1.9 trillion annually. Unfortunately for consumers, these regulations are often put in place to limit competition and restrict entry into the marketplace by firms trying to avoid the gales of creative destruction. And now, there is a renewed interest in weaponized antitrust, with America’s tech giants under renewed scrutiny at home and abroad. The culprits are competitors seeking to increase their market share through government intervention. Unfortunately, for consumers, this typically means higher prices and reduced choices in the marketplace.

When Innovation Is Bad: The EU vs. Google

In its latest broadside against American technology companies, the EU last month slapped Google with a record $2.7 billion fine for leveraging its dominance as a search engine to boost Google Shopping over competing online services. This is indicative of the EU’s ongoing battle with American tech companies, with Google, Facebook, Apple, and Microsoft under constant scrutiny of the regulators in Brussels. But this EU flavor of antitrust is very different from American antitrust law and has far more to do with industrial policy than consumer protection.
