Google, Amazon, Apple and Facebook due to attend congressional hearing
The CEOs of the world's biggest tech companies - Google, Amazon, Apple and Facebook - are due to attend a congressional hearing on July 27th. According to Business Insider, this is part of a wider investigation by the US government into the dominance of large tech companies. This will be an antitrust hearing, which means they're looking at ways to prevent these firms gaining a monopoly in their industries or too much control over their markets.
What do you guys think about this? Do tech companies have too much influence and control right now? Should we be regulating them more than we are? How much of a problem is corporate consolidation?
All behaviour is a need trying to be met.
