Committee for the Study of Digital Platforms

On September 16, 2019, the Stigler Center released the Final Report and Policy Brief of the Digital Platforms Committee.

The independent and non-partisan Committee – composed of more than 30 highly-respected academics, policymakers, and experts – spent over a year studying in-depth how Digital Platforms such as Google and Facebook impact: economy and antitrust laws; data protection; the political system; and the news media industry.

Each subcommittee report addresses in detail how Digital Platforms impact these different facets of our society, and proposes a range of policy solutions for lawmakers and regulators to consider when addressing the power held by these companies. In addition, the report contains a policy brief that summarizes the main report findings and proposes cohesive policy solutions.
