Summary

Critics argue that Amazon’s popularity and low prices should not make the company a target, and Amazon argues that its unique approach creates new opportunities and competition avenues for emerging businesses.Republican Senator Orrin Hatch branded Khan’s thesis and those who support it as “hipster antitrust”.Biden thinks Khan is the woman for the job of reshaping antitrust law and taking Big Tech to task over anticompetitive practices.Progressive like Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren agree — she called Khan’s leadership of the FTC “a huge opportunity to make big, structural change by reviving antitrust enforcement and fighting monopolies that threaten our economy, our society, and our democracy”.Facebook filed a petition last week to have Khan recused from antitrust cases involving it, arguing that her past writings and comments make her biased against the social media giant.Amazon – which is facing multiple probes by the FTC – filed a similar motion seeking to have Khan recused from proceedings involving it as well.Potentially.
