FSR Talk with Prof. Nicolas Petit, EUI

We all see that Big Tech companies and platforms – notably the American Google, Amazon, Facebook, Apple, etc – have built powerful positions from which they never stop expanding. Netflix is another blatant demonstration. It begs the questions:

  • Will Education, Health, even Public Government routine (as car registration & monitoring for road conduct enforcement) follow the same way to ‘’Moligopoly’’?
  • Is this consequential for the rest of the economy and society? And why?
  • What could be done to get it better or safer?

Wednesday 13 January, 2pm CET, in this FSR Talk, Petit will discuss his views with professors EricBrousseau & Jean-Michel Glachant. Participants will have a chance to intervene directly in our online Q&A.
