Barry Lynn, who heads the Open Markets Institute (OMI), talked about his organization, which studies the size and power of companies that look like monopolies. He said the companies that concern him most are “platform” companies such as Google, Facebook, Amazon, and possibly Uber, and argued that monopolies threaten democracy and the economy. Mr. Lynn also spoke about some of the ways to prevent companies from becoming dangerous, such as anti-trust laws.

Mr. Lynn formed OMI after he and the Open Markets division of the New America Foundation were forced to leave the organization. OMI says Mr. Lynn was forced to leave New America because Google, a major funder of that foundation, threatened to withdraw its funds over Mr. Lynn’s criticism of Google and his support for fines against Google. close
