If you've read my piece on why now is the time to break up #Facebook, and you want to learn more about the topics of corporate concentration and breaking up monopolies, here's a recommended reading list: medium.com/@chrishughes/a…
The best primer on the topic is "The Curse of Bigness." Written by @superwuster, it makes a case that antitrust has always been about holding the most powerful accountable. indiebound.org/book/978099974…
After reading #CurseofBigness, go deeper on the link between inequality and antitrust in a paper called “Market Power and Antitrust.” Its authors, @linamkhan and @sandeepvaheesan, have gone out of their way to make the writing accessible and lucid. papers.ssrn.com/sol3/papers.cf…
While you are reading Law Review articles (!), read "Amazon’s Antitrust Parardox" in the Yale Law Review, also by @linamkhan. It lays out the problems in #Amazon’s case: its market dominance AND its ability to produce what it sells. yalelawjournal.org/note/amazons-a…
If you’re more of a listener than a reader, NPR’s @planetmoney did a three-part series on #antitrust that is informative and entertaining. npr.org/sections/money…
If you’re looking for a book-length, broad take on how concentration is affecting the heart of American capitalism, check out @jtepper2’s book "The Myth of Capitalism." indiebound.org/book/978111954…
History buffs will want to learn about the theory and approach of Justice Louis Brandeis. I recommend his lively and enlightening speeches and letters, collected in "Brandeis on Democracy." indiebound.org/book/978070060…
While you’re at it, check out the legendary journalist Steve Coll’s play-by-play account of the years leading up to the AT&T break-up in 1982, called "The Deal of the Century." abebooks.com/servlet/Search…
Dozens of other solid think tank reports and economic papers out there – too many to list them all! One of the best are the @rooseveltinst’s New Rules 2021 framework. bit.ly/2vIpM1T
The following three papers... bit.ly/2PLwnlJ, bit.ly/2IQfzFe, bit.ly/2VdcolV
...and a speech given by @jasonfurman, Obama’s Director of the National Economic Council, just before he left office. obamawhitehouse.archives.gov/sites/default/…
Finally, check out @ksabeelrahman's book "Democracy against Domination." While not only focused on antitrust, it makes a strong case for the importance of mass participation in the political and economic order, something which powerful monopolies stifle. indiebound.org/book/978019091…
