An urgent and persuasive argument for why we must fight global monopolies to protect freedom and prosperity.

3 stars out of 5

"A punchy but flawed case is made for monopoly-busting"

The author concludes with a crisp mini-manifesto, centred on justified calls to break up Facebook and use market investigations to challenge concentrations of power across the rest of the economy. In the future we will need to enforce tougher rules on mergers and breaking up big tech is the way, longer term, to ensure healthy competition. But that leads on to the other big problem here: The Curse of Bigness was written before the damned virus.
