Moss Explains Competitive Concerns in Amazon Probe to the Washington Post

In a September 11, 2019 story “Amazon Probed by U.S. Antitrust Officials Over Marketplace” the Washington Post asked AAI for an explanation of the competitive issues involving Amazon’s pricing policies. From the article:

If merchants are so reliant on Amazon for sales that they are unwilling to offer better prices on other platforms like Walmart and EBay, that can hurt competition, said Diana Moss, president of the American Antitrust Institute, a nonprofit that advocates for aggressive antitrust enforcement.  “That really is the central question in an inquiry like this, and that’s why Amazon downplays its market power.”
