Thursday, August 11th, 2022   Zephyr Teachout is Senior Counsel for Economic Justice for the New York Attorney General and law professor at Fordham University. We revisit our conversation with her about her book, Break 'Em Up: Recovering Our Freedom from Big Ag, Big Tech, and Big Money. We discuss how monopolies are deeply anti-democratic, how we can break them up by enforcing existing anti-trust laws, and protect our democracy.   Monopolies are anti-democratic because they have the power to set the terms of interactions, from the pricing of consumer goods to interactions with suppliers and resolving disputes. They exert a form of private governing power and control over citizens within our democracy. Chickenization refers to the ways large poultry distributors subjugate independent chicken farmers who depend on them to bring their chickens to market. These regional monopolies force farmers to use their feed, accept the equivalent of poverty wages, require arbitration contracts, and retaliate against farmers who break the rules. Similarly, delivery apps control restaurants and ride-share apps control taxi drivers.  America has a long history of trust-busting, and anti-monopolism was once a vital facet of American political activism, and it could be again by enforcing existing US antitrust laws.    Follow Zephyr on Twitter:  https://twitter.com/ZephyrTeachout    Follow Mila on Twitter:  https://twitter.com/milaatmos    Follow Future Hindsight on Instagram:  https://www.instagram.com/futurehindsightpod/   Love Future Hindsight?

Republican politicos are all over Joe Biden for failing to stop inflation. Perhaps you wonder, though, what these squawkers would do if they were in charge? No need to wonder – just look back to 1974, when Americans were being pummeled by price spikes that topped 12%, nearly double what we're enduring today. But by Gollies, President Gerald Ford and his Republican contingent in Congress met the challenge head-on with a new magical program of economic uplift they called WIN – Whip Inflation Now! But it was nothing – just a political slogan with no magic and no action behind it. Price controls? Antitrust action? No, no, GOP Inc. didn't want to offend, much less punish, corporate titans for a little profiteering, so they shifted the blame for inflation to consumers, demanding that families just say no to price gouging. Ford himself went on national TV, urging fellow citizens to join him in buying “only those products and services priced at or below present levels.” The core of the Republican “program,” then, was telling hard-hit wage earners to battle the monopolistic behemoths of Big Oil, Big Pharma, Big Food, et al on their own by simply refusing to pay inflated prices for the gasoline, medicines, groceries, and such that–hellllooooo–they had to have. As a reward, everyone who signed a form promising be an “Inflation Fighter” was sent a nifty WIN button, indicating their patriotic participation. Sure enough, Americans responded enthusiastically – with an avalanche of ridicule. Even Ford's own top economic advisor, Alan Greenspan, was whopper jawed by the GOP's idea that the substance of their policy was a political button: “It was surreal. …I said to myself. ‘This is unbelievable stupidity.'” Yet, this time, Republican leaders are more surreal, not even pretending to have solution… and we don't even get a button.

Whether in academia, on Capitol Hill, among federal and state enforcers, or in the plaintiff and defense bars, few topics are debated as hotly as the future of antitrust law. The Biden administration's ambitious competition policies and enforcement goals are evolving against the backdrop of this larger debate – and to strong fanfare in some quarters. Certain academics, practitioners, and politicians view the Biden administration's approach as a renaissance, one that embodies the Neo-Brandeisian revolution and is a much-needed return to the original intent of U.S. antitrust law.Others are more skeptical, and consider the Biden administration's more expansive approach inconsistent with current law or sound policy. These skeptics believe the Biden administration's approach goes beyond legitimate objectives for antitrust policy and enforcement, and that the new efforts of the Biden FTC or DOJ amount to mission creep, or worse.This webinar will feature Elyse Dorsey, Amanda Lewis, David J. Shaw, and Jonathan Wolfson discussing antitrust developments under the Biden administration and offering various evaluations of the administration's approach.Featuring:Elyse Dorsey, Partner, Kirkland & Ellis LLPAmanda Lewis, Partner, Cuneo Gilbert & Deluca, LLPDavid J.

Compliance Perspectives
Andrew Mast on the US Department of Justice's Antitrust Initiatives [Podcast]

Post by Adam Turteltaub To get a better understanding of the state of antitrust enforcement we sat down with Andrew Mast, Counsel to the Assistant Attorney General for Antitrust at the US Department of Justice. In this podcast he shares key priorities of the Antitrust Division. First up is a discussion of the Supply Chain Initiative, which is a partnership between the DOJ and FBI. Supply chain disruptions have caused prices to increase, as we have all seen, and the Initiative is tasked with determining whether the disruptions have been used as a cover for collusive conduct. As he notes, past disruptions, ranging from the Great Recession to a spike in the price of tuna, have led to collusive behavior. To help protect consumers and businesses dependent on their supply chains, the Initiative is taking a proactive approach, working closely with the governments of the United Kingdom, Canada, Australia and New Zealand, sharing intelligence and working cooperatively. The DOJ is also reaching out to the business community, providing education about antitrust laws, encouraging the development of compliance programs, and sharing details about the Antitrust Division's leniency program. Under it, the first conspirator in a price-fixing conspiracy can avoid criminal prosecutions. But, he warns, companies must report promptly after discovering collusive behavior to enjoy the full benefits. To help business understand the program fully, a new FAQ is now available. Another priority for the Department of Justice is labor market collusion. Their goal is to ensure workers gain the benefits of competition. In the Department's view, no-poach and similar agreements lead to lower wages, reduced mobility and less ability for workers to negotiate watches. Several firms have already been indicted. Finally, he discusses the Procurement Collusion Strike Force, founded in the wake of increased government spending such as the $1.2 billion infrastructure bill. The goals of the Task Force are to deter antitrust activity and to facilitate more effective prevention, investigation and prosecution. Over 20,000 individuals have been trained as a part of this initiative, and it covers both US procurement domestically and internationally. Listen in to learn more about what the DOJ is doing, and what compliance teams should be thinking about.

It's been almost 30 years since Mosaic, the first popular web browser was released in 1993. So much has changed since that time, both technologically and socially. But what has the web wrought? In its earliest days, the World Wide Web was seen as a new tool that would democratize information and greatly expand our ability to share knowledge and expressions. That certainly has happened to some degree, but humanity's power structures seem to have adapted as well—for good and ill. Three decades in, has the web been more of a technological revolution than a societal one? Have corporate monopolies and political extremists ruined the internet? And if so, what can the rest of us do about it? Joining us to discuss is Cory Doctorow, he's an author, activist, and journalist who blogs at Pluralistic.net. He also works for the Electronic Frontier Foundation, an organization that works to protect digital rights. He's written many books, both fiction and non-fiction. His most recent novel is “Attack Surface,” a story of a cybersecurity expert caught between her job and justice. His most recent non-fiction book, “Chokepoint Capitalism,” is an examination of how media monopolies are using their power to exploit creators.

Sam and Emma host Mark Joseph Stern, senior writer at Slate, to discuss the recent bombshell SCOTUS opinions, and what other decisions remain to be issued. Then, they are joined by Matt Stoller, Director of Research at the American Economic Liberties Project and author of the BIG newsletter on SubStack, to discuss what's been going on at the Federal Trade Commission. First, Sam and Emma dive into Cassidy Hutchinson's testimony on Trump's request to let more armed protesters into the Capitol since “they're not here to hurt me,” and the Supreme Court allows Louisiana to redistrict around the disenfranchisement of African Americans. Then, they're joined by Mark Joseph Stern as he dives right into Carson v. Makin and the Supreme Court's decision to strike down a Maine requirement for private schools that received PUBLIC funding (largely due to lack of resources for public education in the area) to maintain a secular education, even though these schools are known to reject Muslim and Jewish students and ostracize children of same-sex couples. He, Emma, and Sam discuss how far Kavanaugh and Roberts could go in dismantling secularism and bolstering the funding for hyper-religious PUBLIC institutions. Next, they look to the Kennedy case in Washington, as the Supreme Court struck down the lemon doctrine in the case of a high school football coach coercing his players into Christian prayer. They first boil it down to the legal dispute, looking at the conservative justices' rejection of the “endorsement” of religion as a violation of the establishment clause, before they look to the factual dispute, covering the blatant lies that the conservative majority based their decision on, including ignoring student statements that they were ostracized for refusing to join the prayer, the fact that the coach spent over 50 games leading these prayers, despite only being penalized for the last three, and the fact that the coach voluntarily left the job in the wake of being placed on PAID administrative leave. They wrap up their interview by diving into the rapid manner by which the conservative justices' agenda is being passed, and look at the future of their agenda and the doctrines they'll look to overturn next. Then, Matt Stoller joins as he walks through the Financial Trade Commission's declaration to enforce the Robinson-Patman act requiring corporate middlemen to be paid exclusively for services rendered, looking at the role of Pharmaceutical Benefits Managers, how they extort the industry, and what role this might play in hindering future monopsonies, which leads them to a brief discussion on the monopsony of Minor League Baseball, the role MLB's anti-trust exemption plays in this, and what is being done to push the Majors to provide living wages to the futures of their sport. And in the Fun Half: Sam and Emma walk through Cassidy Hutchinson's extended testimony in front of the 1/6 committee, from Trump's desire to let more armed folks into the Capitol to Mark Meadows taking phone calls in secret on the day of. Tim from Rochester discusses being a High School football player, how coaches sell you a “divine dream,” and the absurdity of the recent SCOTUS ruling around that topic. Next, they look at some early horror stories around trigger laws in Dayton Ohio, and reflect on the Terri Schiavo case some decade and a half later. Emma discusses the anemic Democratic response to Roe, the Dem Leadership's game of pretend around what the Republicans' goals for reproductive rights actually are, and the crew covers some of the stupidest arguments about the hope inspired by Dobbs.
