Is Google Guilty of Being Too Popular With Consumers?

“You may have heard the Biden Justice Department is suing Google in federal court for being a ‘monopoly.’ That’s a bizarre charge given that few, if any companies in all American history have lowered prices more than Google …. I thought monopolies are bad because they RAISE prices. Google does the opposite. If you’re a consumer and a user of Google searches and you feel aggrieved, raise your hand. Actually, the Biden lawyers aren’t even trying to make the case that Google harms its users. Instead, it has invented a new legal theory that Google is hurting its competitors — many of which aren’t even located in the United States. This would be like Burger King suing McDonald’s because more customers are choosing the golden arches.” (09/19/23)
