In this session...

Today’s tech giants are more like countries than companies. It’s not just the vast resources at their disposal, but these multinationals also encompass a constitution, a cabinet, a foreign policy, an annual budget and even social policy – with a sphere of influence that can impact the average consumer and the state.

They have cornered entire markets in search, ecommerce, and social media. They have forced the consolidation of their competitors, creating more monopolies. Companies with this kind of power can distort their own markets and change society, re-writing regulations, creating neighbourhoods, and weakening governments.

We’ll hear from all sides how the David can best co-exist with Goliath – How can we fully understand our new monopolies – and what should we expect of them?
