Bennett Institute webinar – Rethinking how we regulate Big Tech
TPI member Diane Coyle is part of the panel for this event, hosted by the Bennett Institute for Public Policy.
Hear new perspectives on regulating big tech from experts in economics, political philosophy, and law – and a tech industry insider.

But when we think about the influence of Facebook and Google, are advertising-based business models and market power over competitors really the things that should most concern us?
