0:00 -- Intro.1:26-- About this podcast's sponsor: The American College of Governance Counsel.2:13 -- Start of interview.2:45 -- John's "origin story." His time at WLRK and at the SEC.4:15 -- His focus at Harvard Law School and Harvard Business School.4:39 -- About his book THE PROBLEM OF TWELVE: When a Few Financial Institutions Control Everything (2023). Publisher: Columbia Global Reports. "Around the year 2000 [Index Funds and Private Equity Funds] began a sustained takeoff and the book is motivated to tell the story of how that happened and then more importantly what's happened since 2000 with 10-15% compound annual growth every single year for both kinds of funds which is much bigger and much faster than the economy or the capital markets or corporations.""The problem of twelve is just trying to get a catchy way to get people to understand that it's not just growth, that'd be one thing, but it's concentration."11:22 -- On "What came before: the Twentieth Century's Public Company" and the rise of private markets."Actually, the public markets have gotten bigger, even though the number of companies has fallen. It's not like they're shrinking, which sometimes is the way people talk about it. But what's different is their autonomy is declining. So in 1990, the board of a public company and its CEO were the centers of power. If anything, the CEO was probably the most dominant player and the board was kind of a check. The shareholders were kind of out there, but they really only mattered in a hostile takeover. That was it." "[By year] 2000, 2010, and definitely today what I just described is not true. Boards are now more powerful than CEOs in general. They have a greater influence over setting strategy today.""[The] power started and ended with the CEO in the boardroom. And that really has, I think, dramatically declined and continues to decline as a way of describing how the US economic system works."15:39 -- Evolution of US boardrooms since the 1970s."I think of boards as becoming more important during that period because businesses were stumbling. As long as CEOs were successful in running their empires, I don't think the pressure to provide a different governance system would have been nearly as powerful.""Jay Lorsch at HBS wrote an early study suggesting that boards really were not doing much. Jay was very much part of the movement to get boards to be more active, because he thought that was better than the alternatives of either continued stagnation in economic activity or worse solutions, which other people were proposing."20:19 -- On the impact and evolution of Index Funds."[T]he key thing is scale. It's not as if there's like 55 different index funds all competing with each other. No, there's really just a small number of families [ie. the Big Four, BlackRock, Vanguard, State Street and Fidelity] that are achieving these scale levels. So that's the basic problem of the book.""[W]hen Jack Bogle set up Vanguard, he wasn't setting out to take over half of all the stocks in the country. It took him 30 years just to get to 2%. It's just a side effect and so the system was not designed with that kind of concentration in mind. "[W]e're now having to go through a period where we've already started and it will continue for people as these things continue to grow and get even bigger to really rethink where should the governance power sit. Should it sit, at the board? Should it sit at the fund portfolio manager who doesn't really exist in an index fund, it's just a guy who has a list? Should it sit with a corporate governance professional that the fund advisor hires, that the fund then gives the power to? Or should it be something more complicated, some set of interactions between different people over time? And I tend to think that last thing I said is the right answer, but getting exactly the solution is hard, which is why I didn't call the book The Solution to the Problem at all, because I don't really have a perfect solution."27:12 -- On the polarization of corporate governance and the ESG backlash."If it had not been climate, which is Larry Fink's, of course, major focus that generated most of the pushback, it would have been something else." "State Street a few years ago made a point of saying publicly that if the boards that they voted for were not sufficiently diverse and they had some specific criteria, they would withhold votes from the nominating committee chair. And you can see in the data, if you look at the way boards are formed, the impact of State Street's intervention."30:35 -- On the pass-through voting initiatives."If you look at the websites that BlackRock and Vanguard and State Street all have up about what they're doing, they're not really passing the votes through or even getting close to it. They're going to let their own investors once a year pick a policy from a limited menu of policies, and then they're going to look how many people pick which policy, and then that will inform how they vote. So they're keeping the votes, but they are going to let people kind of give them an indication of more or less how to vote overall. And so that's some degree of trying to address the problem of twelve.""I think in 10 or 15 years most people will do one of three things: 1) They'll let BlackRock keep voting the way they want to, with their money, and who cares? They're just not paying attention to governance, and that's their right. They can just ignore it; 2) a group of people will be pushing BlackRock to do even more of what they're doing now, to be even more green or left or however you want to think about it; and 3) there will be another group of people who'll be pulling the other way, and then BlackRock will probably be in there, be splitting their vote to some extent on some of the more high-profile issues."On Exxon's proxy fight with Engine No.1.37:28 -- On antitrust and concentration of power in index funds. "Antitrust traditionally would just look at the activity of investment as the right thing to think about concentration and not the governance impact. That's really not part of antitrust law. That's again part of why I wrote the book to get a different focus on this. [But] there are people who want to change antitrust law, they want to take concentration in governance and somehow relate it to portfolio company concentration." "There are claims for example that the index funds caused the airlines to be more collusive than they would be anyway. Or the banks or take your pick and maybe there's some truth to that but it's kind of indirect and I think it's going to take a lot of work to make that feel like you're being directly responsive to the problem and I'm not sure it'll get there in the end.""There are also people who just want to change the basic understanding what antitrust is about, introduce politics into it again, and say this is a political problem and therefore we should use antitrust. There is a lot of resistance to that."39:39 -- On the private equity industry."The biggest PE complexes not only have equity capital that they manage, they also have debt capital. And so in a difficult interest rate environment, that's a nice place to be. You have resources that you can tap on the credit side as well as on the investment side. And so I think, again, as with index funds, we're seeing greater concentration of greater growth driven by slightly different economies of scale, but I think still real, that allow the biggest players to sort of sit at the intersection of lots of different capital market activity. And that lets them leverage the information they gather across a much bigger base [and] grow faster than their competitors. I expect the big PE players are going to continue to do better than PE overall and better than the overall economy, even if they may run into some challenges in the next few years."43:05 -- On PE driving ~25% of all M&A activity. "PE complexes in a lot of ways are sort of replacing a role that banks used to play, but without any of the regulation."46:25 -- On the governance distinctions between PE-backed companies and public companies."[PE-backed boards are often] more focused and effective.""[T]he PE world by design is with almost no public disclosure. There is disclosure sometimes of some things from the PE fund or advisor to LPs [but] the information flows [generally] are quite weak. And they're weakest in some respects around conflicts, which it should be the other way around. The conflict should be the place where the people with the equity at stake ought to be told the most and yet often that's the place where the system does not, in my opinion, live up to its billing. Part of the reason for that, it's not often appreciated that most of the money in PE funds comes from other funds, meaning, and in particular comes from pension funds who are overseen by well-meaning people, who often are honest and straightforward, but frankly are not up to, in my opinion, the task of overseeing a PE complex and their advisors. There's an industry association, the ILPA, that sort of tries to help coordinate across PE fund investors, the positions they take on disclosure and conflicts."54:58 -- On SPACs."[T]here's a lot of companies right now that are going through some difficult governance challenges in the current economic environment in which the SPAC structure and the board that it brought in might be at odds with the sponsor or other people that were associated with the SPAC.""If you're on a board or advising a board of a company that's associated with a SPAC, this is the time to really lean in about your conflicts, because the conflicts are absolutely really acute right now because of the interest rate environment."*On SPAC Law and Myths (Feb 2022).56:19 -- Books that have greatly influenced his life: City of Capital: Politics and Markets in the English Financial Revolution by Bruce Carruthers (1996)Wolf Hall by Hillary Mantel (2009)Mars Trilogy by Kim Stanley Robinson (1990s)58:38 -- His mentors: Tom Noble (College advisor and History Professor)Craig Wasserman (WLRK)1:00:14 -- Quotes that he thinks of often or lives her life by: "Without contraries is no progression."

In 2021, Intel Corporation partnered with legal service organizations across the country to provide pro bono assistance through expungement clinics in support of their commitment to racial justice. With unique volunteer opportunities available for all staff, Intel was able to bring in a much larger group of volunteers beyond attorneys. Their teams quickly saw an overwhelmingly positive impact within communities both socially and financially. Since 2022, Intel has worked with well over 150 clients across the U.S. who have been successful in getting their dismissal petitions granted. For our latest Signatory Showcase series podcast episode, we spoke with Eva Almirantearena, Intel's Vice President and Associate General Counsel in Antitrust and Commercial Litigation Group about Intel's incredible pro bono work expunging criminal records.
This week we brought TechCrunch's own Rebecca Bellan onto the podcast to help us better understand Google's search-related anti-trust case that is currently ongoing in the United States.There are a number of major legal cases involving tech giants and their in-market heft and behavior, from Google v. Epic to what's going on in the EU and the U.S. government's adtech-related suit against Google, but our focus is search.Catch up on the state of affairs with Bellan's reporting here.Now, the startup angle. Why is this a topic for Equity? A few reasons: If Google's current methods of maintaining its domestic search market share are forced to change, it could create a more competitive search market, full stop. That could change up where startups advertise, and how much they pay for those ads. More competitive search results amongst emboldened rivals could also lead to search results that lean more towards organic information instead of paid insertions. That would be good for startups looking to get the word out, without having to get their wallet out.We could go on. But hit play and hang out with Rebecca and Alex for more. We'll have her back on when the verdict comes down. Talk to you Friday for our news roundup!For episode transcripts and more, head to Equity's Simplecast website.Equity drops at 7 a.m. PT every Monday, Wednesday and Friday, so subscribe to us on Apple Podcasts, Overcast, Spotify and all the casts.

In 2020 the Trump administration and eleven state attorney generals initiated an antitrust lawsuit against Google for its alleged anti-competitive behaviors in the search engine market. Last month, the lawsuit went to trial. In this episode we explain what a monopoly is, the government's antitrust allegations, and weigh-in on whether we agree that Google has abused its monopoly position. We also provide some critical background information necessary to better understand the lawsuit. It's worth nothing that Google is in the midst of several other antitrust lawsuits, including one recently initiated by the Biden administration related to the ads market. In this episode we exclusively concentrate on the search engine lawsuit.

While the sports world has been fixated on the goings on with the University of Michigan football program and the potentially explosive cheating scandal we told you about last week, the really important action has been taking place 2,000 miles away. In an Oakland, Calif. Courtroom, a judge is preparing to rule on a case that may decide nothing less than the future of American sports. As far as can be gleaned from her bio, U.S. District Court Senior Judge Claudia Wilken is neither a former athlete nor is she a sports fan. Yet, if the events of last week are an indicator, history may prove Wilken, who sits in the Northern California district, to be one of the most significant figures in American sports history. Wilken is hearing motions in a case where three current and former college athletes have brought suit against the NCAA. The athletes, Arizona State swimmer Grant House, former Oregon and current Texas Christian basketball player Sedona Prince and former Illinois football player Tymir Ta-meer Oliver, are seeking to take the NCAA for a very expensive ride. The three athletes contend that they are owed millions in lost broadcast revenue denied them before 2021 by the college athletics governing body and the five biggest conferences. The suit arrives as athletes have come in recent years to receive payments for the use of their names, images and likenesses. Prince, Oliver and House contend that they are owed damages for what they could have made had the NCAA and the conferences not restricted those earnings before 2021. We've long railed in this space about the historic resistance of college administrators to granting athletes compensation beyond a scholarship, a foolish and old-fashioned opposition at best. The NCAA has begrudgingly loosened those prohibitions, though not by choice. As a result, increasing numbers of young people are making thousands, if not in some cases, millions, presenting themselves as commercial pitch persons locally and nationally, as the markets will allow. What's been missing is the athletes' share of the billions colleges receive in television money that the NCAA, conferences and schools garner from the networks in rights fees. Their professional brethren get their share of TV scratch through collective bargaining with the NFL, Major League Baseball, the NBA, the NHL and others. College students should get the same. And that may be the next phase. The attorneys representing the trio bringing the suit are arguing that any potential damages should be granted to current and future athletes who competed from 2016 to the June 2020 date the complaint was filed. That's more than 14,000 athletes in different classes, if you're counting. Wilken, who has previously cleared the way for athlete compensation in two other cases, seemed amenable to opening the gates beyond the three plaintiffs in arguments made last week. The full lawsuit is to be heard in 14 months, but the NCAA shouldn't wait to go into full panic mode. You see, the plaintiffs are seeking $1.4 billion in damages, which, under federal antitrust law, could triple to $4.2 billion. That's nearly 10 times the assets the NCAA reported for last year. And that dread couldn't happen to a nicer group of people. And that's how I see it for this week. You can reach us via email with your questions and comments at Sports at Large at gmail.com. And follow me on Threads and Twitter at Sports at Large. Until next week, for all of us here, I'm Milton Kent.

In this episode of Deal-by-Deal, host Greg Hawver talks to fellow McGuireWoods partner Holden Brooks about antitrust considerations for private equity investors in the middle market (and, interestingly, the lower middle market).They begin by discussing the Hart-Scott-Rodino Act, which requires pre-close filings for deals valued above $111.4 million that also meet certain other criteria — and note that some add-on strategies and other deals below this threshold may be subject to investigation by the Federal Trade Commission or Department of Justice if there are antitrust concerns.Hawver and Brooks also discuss FTC v. U.S. Anesthesia Partners and Welsh Carson a lawsuit that highlights the importance of assessing one's own acquisition conduct, being precise and accurate in communications and documents, and involving antitrust counsel in the pipeline stage of deals.Meet Your Guest Name: Holden BrooksTitle: Partner, McGuireWoodsSpeciality: Holden is a partner in the firm's Antitrust, Trade and Commercial Litigation Department, where her practice focuses on mergers, complex litigation, civil and criminal enforcement, and counseling across several industries with significant experience in the area of healthcare.Connect: LinkedIn ContactConnect with us on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, YouTube.This podcast was recorded and is being made available by McGuireWoods for informational purposes only.

In September 2023, the Federal Trade Commission and 17 states filed a massive, landmark antitrust lawsuit against Amazon, alleging that Amazon engaged in anti-competitive and unfair practices to expand and maintain an illegal monopoly in two online markets, the market for marketplace services, where sellers buy services from Amazon, and the consumer-facing market for online superstores. The complaint focuses on two main theories: anti-discounting and tying Prime eligibility to Amazon's fulfillment services. Adam Kovacevich, Founder and CEO of Chamber of Progress, speaks about the potential consequences of this suit for antitrust enforcement, consumers, and other companies. Tune in to find out more about the complaint, its potential consequences for antitrust enforcement, consumers, and other firms competing in the online marketplace.

When Lina Khan was in law school back in 2017, she wrote a law review article called 'Amazon's Antitrust Paradox,' that went kinda viral in policy circles. In it, she argued that antitrust enforcement in the U.S. was behind the times. For decades, regulators had focused narrowly on consumer welfare, and they'd bring companies to court only when they thought consumers were being harmed by things like rising prices. But in the age of digital platforms like Amazon and Facebook, Khan argued in the article, the time had come for a more proactive approach to antitrust.Just four years later, President Biden appointed Lina Khan to be the Chair of the Federal Trade Commission, one of the main government agencies responsible for enforcing antitrust in America, putting her in the rare position of putting some of her ideas into practice.Now, two years into the job, Khan has taken some big swings at big tech companies like Meta and Microsoft. But the FTC has also faced a couple of big losses in the courts. On today's show, a conversation with FTC Chair Lina Khan on what it's like to try to turn audacious theory into bureaucratic practice, the FTC's new lawsuit against Amazon, and what it all means for business as usual.

Despite the recent ups and downs we've seen in the market, sellers around the US have been happy with their transactions over the last 10 years; but have they gotten the short end of the stick? The National Association of Realtors and a few major brokers have been found guilty of inflating their commissions in Missouri, Kansas, and Illinois. Though this only pertains to a few states for now, the rest of the US will likely follow and potentially bankrupt the whole industry or force mass consolidation. Today Joe Cucchiara and Jack Russo look at the significant blow the NAR just took and how things like automation and blockchain technology will further disrupt the industry.

Have home owners been getting taken advantage of on commissions on sales of their home? The Missouri federal jury in Kansas City says “yes, you have” to sellers in the class a action case covering some 260,000 sales in the states of Missouri, Kansas, and Illinois and finding liability of nearly $2 billion which could be trebled to $6 billion. Even though sellers signed agreements for paying the commissions on those sales, they've been losing to their agents who have been fixing (and inflating) commissions by collective agreements protecting buyer agents who often do little work to justify the commission split. Is the die now cast and will this one successful federal antitrust class action lawsuit (covering just 3 states) mean the rest of the 47 states will follow with their own lawsuits? If so, could multiple lawsuits against the real estate industry leave it vulnerable to the point of extinction? In that case, many brokers would find themselves at risk of consolidating and/or filing for bankruptcy. Today host Jack Russo and Joe Cucchiara discuss this massive disruptive change to real estate industry and the increasing future role of AI, blockchain and other digital technology in real estate transactions.

Attorney Andrew Lieb dives deep into analyzing the implications of the landmark $5.3 billion verdict against NAR and major real estate brokerages in the class action lawsuit. On this episode of The Lieb Cast, Andrew breaks down the antitrust allegations at the center of the case and what the jury's decision could mean for the future of how home sellers and buyers work with real estate agents. He explores possible outcomes of the looming appeal and discusses how the rules of the MLS system and broker commission structures may be disrupted. Andrew also considers what innovative new business models or technologies could emerge as real estate professionals adapt to an industry undergoing significant change in the wake of this high-stakes litigation.
Antitrust enforcement in labor markets continues to escalate worldwide. Jones Day partners Kevin Hart and Philipp Werner talk about the continuing crackdown on anticompetitive labor practices in the U.S. and across the EU, review recent developments in case law, and explain what employers need to know. Read the full transcript here.
The National Association of Realtors recently lost an Antitrust ruling on commissions that could cost 1.8 billion. The ruling states large brokerage firms conspired to artificially inflate the commission. Typically the seller pays the commission to a listing firm and the fee is parsed out between the listing broker and the selling broker. The fallout could mean in the future that a buyer would pay an agent directly to hire someone to help them buy a property and the seller would pay the listing firm only. We explain why there will be an appeal and give our thoughts on this ruling and share additional information on this developing story.

Earlier this fall, the Federal Trade Commission filed a high-stakes lawsuit against Amazon.In that suit, the FTC claims Amazon is a monopoly, and it accuses the company of using anti-competitive tactics to hold onto its market power. It's a big case, with implications for consumers and businesses and digital marketplaces, and for antitrust law itself. That is the highly important but somewhat obscure body of law that deals with competition and big business.And so, this week on Planet Money, we are doing a deep dive on the history of antitrust. It begins with today's episode, a Planet Money double feature. Two classic episodes that tell the story of how the U.S. government's approach to big business and competition has changed over time.First, the story of a moment more than 100 years ago, when the government stepped into the free market in a big way to make competition work. It's the story of John D. Rockefeller and Standard Oil, and a muckraking journalist named Ida Tarbell.Then, we fast forward to a turning point that took antitrust in the other direction. This is the story of a lawyer named Robert Bork, who transformed the way courts would interpret antitrust law.These episodes were produced by Sally Helm with help from Alexi Horowitz Ghazi. They were edited by Bryant Urdstadt. Alex Goldmark is Planet Money's executive producer.Help support Planet Money and get bonus episodes by subscribing to Planet Money+ in Apple Podcasts or at plus.npr.org/planetmoney.
