The Future of Technology Regulation
What's Next in Protecting the Public Interest Online
At a time when Americans are more reliant on online services than ever before, the question of how to protect the public interest online is increasingly urgent. The federal government currently has limited ability to understand, anticipate, and protect Americans from the interlocking economic, consumer protection, civil rights, and privacy harms they face online. The case for bold action is clear, and policy developments are gaining momentum in Washington and across the country.
New thinking on technology regulation has led to bipartisan efforts toward stronger antitrust enforcement and competition in digital markets, as well as other exciting proposals to reimagine democratic oversight of technology and online services. The nation is drawing on the robust progressive tradition of antitrust and regulation working hand in hand to confront the challenges of regulating new technologies, with the ultimate goal of protecting American consumers.
