Diana Moss Tells Washington Post That Antitrust Can Address Modern Markets But We Need the Agencies and Judges to Take the Steps

Diana Moss was quoted in the July 30, 2017 Washington Post story A 28-year-old law student takes on the ‘Everything Store’ by asking if antitrust law is adequate in a winner-take-all economy Is Amazon getting too big?

“I think there is a fair bit of flexibility in the law to allow us to adjust and adapt to modern markets and technologies,” said Diana Moss, president of the American Antitrust Institute.

 Moss cited recent cases that looked beyond consumer prices to take in issues such as innovation, bargaining power and arrangements that lock consumers into existing products. The real problem, she said, is in getting more judges and enforcement agency officials to pay attention.
