Reining in Monopoly Power: Small Businesses and the Push to Strengthen Antitrust Laws
Mike Tucker, President and CEO, Independent Office Products & Furniture Dealers Association
Congressman David Cicilline
Chairman, Subcommittee on Antitrust, Commercial and Administrative Law
The pandemic exposed, and turbocharged, many inequalities in our economy, including years of rampant market power abuse by dominant corporations at the expense of small businesses.
Now, for the first time in decades, passing new anti-monopoly laws is shaping up to be a key priority for federal policymakers in 2021. Last October, the House Subcommittee on Antitrust, Commercial and Administrative Law, led by Congressman David Cicilline, published the findings of an extensive investigation of market concentration. The report concludes that dominant firms like Amazon are abusing their market power and calls for new legislation to update and strengthen the antitrust laws.
Small businesses have a critical role to play in a healthy economy and democracy, shaping this agenda and ensuring that anti-monopoly policies are a central part of Congress’s economic recovery strategy.
Please join with independent business owners and leaders from across the country for a live conversation with Congressman Cicilline and other experts and advocates.
