Calls Grow to Break Up Facebook, Amazon for "Mob-Like" Behavior, Monopoly Power

For more on the United States trying to break up big tech, Democracy Now! is joined by Scott Galloway, professor of marketing at New York University Stern. He’s the author of The New York Times bestseller The Four: The Hidden DNA of Amazon, Apple, Facebook, and Google and The Algebra of Happiness.

His recent opinion piece in Business Insider is headlined “This may be the beginning of the end of Big Tech—we shouldn’t see it as a punishment, but a restoration of balance”

And their conclusions seemed pretty swift and unified across both sides of the aisle, that these companies have just aggregated too much power.

Now, each of the parties seems to be upset for different reasons, but this, at the end of the day, feels like a bipartisan action and belief that these companies have grown too powerful. So it does in fact feel, as I wrote in that article, that may be the beginning of the end of Big Tech as we know it.
