Is Big Tech a Threat?
Is It Too Late to Curtail the Power of Big Tech?
The tech giants—Google, Amazon, Facebook, Twitter—can shut down our ability to speak in an instant. America’s FCC commissioner recently proclaimed that Big Tech “now has more control over more speech than any institution in history.”
The question is: Can anything be done?
Tune in to this debate to learn about just how much of a threat Big Tech poses to American democracy—and about the competing ideas to curtail the tech giants’ power.
Does the federal government need to intervene to break up Big Tech? Or is decentralization the answer? The Conservative Partnership Institute’s Rachel Bovard and the Cato Institute’s Will Duffield debate these and other questions.
This event, part of the Intercollegiate Studies Institute’s Diana Davis Spencer Debate Series, was recorded live on Wednesday, February 24, at 7:30 p.m. ET.
