U.S. Antitrust Chief Expresses Concerns About Tech 'Stifling Innovation'

The Justice Department’s top antitrust enforcer is receptive to complaints that tech companies such as Google and Facebook may be hindering competition with their dominance but believes regulators lack the economic evidence that would be needed to prove such a case in court. Makan Delrahim, the agency’s antitrust chief, said at an event hosted by Axios that there are “very valid concerns at some level” about whether companies in Silicon Valley are getting too big, or “stifling innovation or consumer choice.”
