"I'm gonna do tom defend ever but but i guess i'm saying these issues of women's rights. Our president afghanistan taliban not their present in in other parts of central asia and west asia taliban or not is that not is that not right. I mean even even in south asia in india and pakistan. You see some of these same restrictions on women's rights. I mean you've you've worked in countries beyond afghanistan correct so this isn't just a this is not simply in afghanistan problem it's not simply a taliban problem correct. Correct wolverton about themselves were born in pakistan. So there's also a lot of conservative values there you mentioned saudi arabia another country. There are many many were. there are obstacles to women's rights. in fact there is no country in the world that has achieved full equality for women in bristol fighting for rights of bodily autonomy and integrity. Here in the us so you can imagine. This is not a quick fix and there was a lot of resistance to it and so much of this plays out on women's bodies. Women's lives so afghanistan unfortunately has more as greater challenges. But this is not unusual happens. And i've seen it everywhere and especially in times of conflict and insecurity. All those pre existing vulnerabilities that women and girls have those inequalities are magnified are amplified or made so much worse so we see less girls in school less women in office in the market on the streets in public place in the workplace. We see increased forms of violence against women. All of those things happen unfortunately everywhere and we see play out time so again so i mean today. Today's world humanitarian day. So this conversation is very present because we are talking about what happens to women and girls in humanitarian settings in. It's precisely so why. Why do we not send the same amount of resource that we sit over the past twenty years from the us to afghanistan. We all recognize going in. Yes we wanted to fight terror. Yes we wanted to get rid of. Find osama bin laden and find the people who attacked us on september eleventh and rid ourselves of the taliban but the images that resonated with americans in twenty in two thousand one and two and three etc why. The taliban was so awful and horrible. Americans remember about the taliban is less. Oh will they protect the terrorists and more they made women wear burqas. you know. we're a visual society. We think of these things. What people in america remember is. The taliban used to kill women if their husband cheated on them. The taliban used to stone them for this that or the other. The taliban did not let them leave the house. We think about the fact that girls weren't allowed and a lot of the a lot of the fury from americans over the past few days since this past week since they caliban came back into couple has been over. The rights of women and girls tanabe educated. Human rights that they will lose granted. A lot of americans didn't pay too much attention to afghanistan for the past twenty years and simply wanted to get out of it but now we're seeing this groundswell for the last week or so of support for how awful the taliban treats women and girls. Why don't we have that same sort of anger..

"Its first regime a ridiculously absurd lee strict version of interpretation of sharia law and even fellow muslims would disagree would soon muslims would say as far too strict and we see that in other countries around the middle east and the south east asia and parts of central europe but do we but even without the talibans credibly conservative interpretation of sharia afghanistan is still a conservative country. Islam is still a conservative has a lot of conservative adherence especially in central and western asia. Are there are there issues. Culturally that are keeping women oppressed just as much as the taliban if the taliban had not taken kabul yesterday this past weekend the past twenty years. You're saying that only forty percent of girls were attending school. That means that there's a problem beyond simply. The taliban is that right culturally. There's an issue there is first of all they're still out of fear of the taliban were present as i said so. There is that concern as well. There's accessibility there. In distance. children from school there's economic cost There is religion play for poorer cultural issues conservative values. So it's it's a broad ready and got the last thing.

"The taliban has been and they seem to know what we want to say. And absolute power corrupts and so. Maybe they'll be good for a few weeks or years and we certainly shouldn't assume that they're going to fulfill all these promises but for the moment at least girls in harare are going to school. Does that give you any hope or is it just a a do you see it as a placating folks for now it might be that there are parents who are afraid to send their girls to school. They're afraid about what happened. This is an unknown situations extremely unpredictable. And there's a history of violence and to have a daughter. I mean i personally would not send any daughter that i might have to school. At this moment. I would rather that we wait and see because there is a a fear of violence that is grounded in the history of abuse of the taliban's has inflicted on women girls so even that fear of violence. I would argue as a form of violence and that is going to keep girls out of school and women out of work and people and women and girls off the streets. So i would listeners. Know i was lucky enough to go to afghanistan in two thousand seven with unicef. And i have been looking all week at photos from that trip and kind of having my heart broken just a bit because you know one of those powerful visuals for me was i mean schools that were bursting open because they had previously been built just for boys and now they had girls who were attending walking eleven miles a day to get to school and one school in particular that of course the girls and the boys are split up into separate classes because there is a that is a part of islam but there was one particular school that was set up for young girls to learn to read and all of their parents. All of their mother's sorry had come with them because the mothers had not been allowed to learn to read yet either and You know of course watching that very much breaks my heart to think that these these young girls in the photos i have are now old enough and older how to read. But they're the young girls in those areas may not be able to have access to that. What what can we do now. Besides i never liked to be a defeatist. I refused to admit defeat on anything. I'm still contesting idol. But if you are if you're sitting here in america and you're seeing these things happen and at the same time recognizing that it sounds like president biden is done right. He has he seems to have not have any interest in backtracking on his opinion and not for going back into afghanistan. It seems if after twenty years the united states was not able to push the taliban out one would question whether or not they'd be able to completely eliminate the taliban even if they did go back. What can we do to. what can we do. just tell me that..

"The news for the past week has remained intently focused on the situation that is ongoing in afghanistan. Evacuations of foreign citizens continues the. Us is actually reported that the military has flown upwards of almost ninety thousand americans and afghan allies out of kabul in the past week alone but still the crowds that have stormed the gates of hamad karzai. International airport are teeming with frantic afghan nationals. Desperate to escape the country that is now under the full control of the taliban but the crowns that are gathering at the airport. At least what we can see them on. Tv seemed to be incredibly notably male but if the taliban's history is any guide it's the women and girls who need most to get away to safety politicains guests this week is incredibly familiar with the human rights abuses of the taliban in the late ninety s. She's not only lived in afghanistan herself but she spent the better part of several decades fighting for women's rights. All over the world. Dr lena abroad is the executive director of the arab institute for women. She joins me on this week's episode of how the heck are we going to get to discuss the ongoing threats to the rights of females in afghanistan after the end of america's longest war. How are you. You've been very busy these past few days i have i. It gives like it's one thing after another but this one has definitely been the word got you still have a lot of contacts infringe. Who are inside in on the ground in afghanistan. i do i do. Absolutely all parts are mostly in kabul mostly in kabul but back when it was safer that everybody was quite spread out we had. We did have some good days where people felt safe to travel organizations. Were setting up offices around the country different regions even in pretty rural and remote areas. But you've and you've spoken to most of them. Have you been able to get in touch with many or most of the people who you know. They're in the past few days and still trying to track a few actually. It's been really difficult. I mean connectivity has not been great to i haven't been able to identify their whereabouts. So i've got a few friends i'm helping. We'll resurface soon. Maybe they're in transit and trying to get the ones you have spoken to. How are how are they feeling about. Not just the general enormity of this change but but on the ground in the moment how are how are conditions where they are. They are afraid they are laying low waiting to see what might transpire. It's not clear I think everybody's very anxious people did see this coming. This was definitely predicted. I spoke to one woman. Who was there who was able to stockpile food for a month because she figured she wouldn't be able to leave the house and sure enough for the last five days has not left the house. does not know she can make it to the airport. Others are saying the same While the taliban claim that they would like things to be as normal but you know under islamic law. There's a lot of ambiguity there. People don't know how to define it. They're extremely concerned and they just don't know until there are some official edicts that are issued. Everybody is living in fear and inland. I mean obviously if we look back to nine thousand nine hundred sixty two thousand one. There is a hell of a lot of reason for people to be concerned. You you have you know a lot more about how what went on in afghanistan in the the taliban i regime what what was it like for these friends of yours who lived there at the time and what types of things did they have to deal with between ninety six one. It was terrifying for them. The lives that they knew before. Nine hundred ninety six ground to an abrupt halt. They had to be covered at all times. You know mandatory wearing of the burqa They had to stop school. Work on all aspects of public lights certainly no political presents. No women in leadership or decision making women in economic life was very restricted. A lot of women developed to certainly if female headed households plunged into poverty Girls were not able to be educated underground. Schools developed a networks and supports even dems that afghan women and women's groups had to create stephen of movement. Right i mean women could not leave the house without a male relative camps absolutely right so it was very difficult to do so but at the same time you. Afghan women are so resilient in part because they have to be constantly throughout history and they were able in one thousand nine hundred six to alert us the rest of the world to what was happening to show us egregious abuses of the toubon by smuggling cameras under gus and exposing that to the world so really thanks to afghan limit into using the worker as a kind of subversive tool that we were able to really get a sense of what was happening. The first video footage that we saw from amputation and and And killings in the stadium for instance came for women so when president biden spoke on monday. I think he. It's sort of interesting to me. As a political observer it's so rare to see republicans and democrats even come in this day and age within ten miles of each other when it comes to any issue right but president biden's speech had a lot of similarities to some of the things that president trump was saying in over during his during his administration and that a lot of republicans have said or at least a lot of middle. American republicans have said over the last several years. Which has been you know. We should not be there. We don't have a role there are. We should not be fighting a war. That afghans would not fight for themselves. Do you think it was fair. I mean we know that. The taliban took over afghanistan province-by-province city by city very quickly in the month of june. Right i mean in june july they really just within three weeks sort of went from having control of your nothing to control over pretty much everything now. It seems hard to believe that. Afghan army that has three hundred thousand strong service members in it that have presumably been trained by the. Us government certainly been funded by the government could possibly lose that much ground that quickly if they had actually tried. Do you think that it's do you think that it's at all that they didn't try or and if so why not or. Do you think that that's not necessarily true. I think that they did try. I think that they were ill-equipped to defeat. The taliban the taliban's much stronger than people imagined of i think of oh. There was two decades of training. Investment that I think people knew that they were still relatively weak And the of months. A lot of power matab didn't disappear and the last two decades. They've always been present and lurking. So yes i mean there is. There was always that fear And now with the us withdrawal. That happened so quickly. I think it was. It was just dangerous. It was a responsible because There was a clear knowledge of afghan military. Just wasn't up to the task and that this would happen and that people knew it and view thinks the barometer of women's rights. And that's the work that i do and women knew it and women saw and women predicted it and they were concerned even though these last two decades. They've come out of the house. They've at at our encouragement. The international community in full support to say come out Assume positions of of politics and power in public life and be present. And don't be afraid and those are dangerous promises to make you for not able to uphold them. I mean i don't. I i think i think there would be and i think i think i've spoken to people who would agree with everything you said but at the same time. Talk about the mismanagement of the government of afghanistan over the past especially seven six seven years especially under the most recent will.

"Got more real june. Eleventh congress introduced five antitrust bills the target amazon apple facebook and google and could potentially break up their businesses a few days later. The white house appointed lena con a big enemy for big tech as a commissioner of the federal trade commission the agency that enforces anti-trust laws. Then it made her their leader kendra. Explain is trained ghaffari history. Hey ryan so we've talked about her before but for those who don't know. Who is lena con. So lena con is a legal scholar. And she's actually the youngest person to ever join and furthermore lead the ftc. She's thirty two and she's really made a name for herself. As a kind of expert on antitrust law and someone who's been a major major critic of big tech and it's alleged monopoly power. I think one of the challenges is deep information a cemeteries that exists between some of these firms and enforcers regulators You know. I think it's clear that in some instances agencies have been a little slow to catch up to the underlying business realities and the empirical realities of how these markets work. And so i think at the very least you know ensuring that the agencies are doing everything they can to keep pace is going to be important. So she's publicly advocated for breaking big tech companies like amazon. She wrote a famous paper a few years ago. That totally changed the way people were thinking about how you could potentially go after big tech companies for being monopolies and she has a lot of support politically from a wide range of people. So everyone from progressive senator elizabeth warren to republican senator. Josh hawley have supported lena kahn. Which is pretty notable right. Yeah it's crazy to have. bipartisan support. These days so how big tech industry leaders reacting to her appointment so big tech industry leaders clearly are not pleased about her appointment. Let alone her being chair of whole ftc which is quite powerful agency right because the ftc can block major tech companies from buying other smaller companies so for example. The ftc code in the future stop facebook from acquiring the next instagram. It could even go back and retroactively tried to separate out companies like facebook from instagram. That would be harder to do but overall the fact that someone who so openly has said that she thinks that these tech companies have too much power is now in power and has the ability to really harm their business that that is not looking good for the tech industry so they see someone who could fundamentally harm their business. Do we know much about khan's plans for the ftc yet. We don't know exactly what she's going to do. But we know that she is going to pursue the whole strain of legal thought that she has essentially pioneered around trying to make the case that went. Big tech companies are too big. They're hurting consumers. They're hurting every day. Americans even if let's say facebook is offering a free social media network for people that it's still could be harming us because we don't have as much of a choice about other alternatives that you could use to facebook for example. So she kind of changed. The definition of how a monopoly can harm consumers because traditionally people thought that if something's a monopoly that means that you're going to be paying higher prices like if a railroad company was a monopoly. You would see that reflected in the fact that you're paying really high ticket prices. That's not the case. Here with these tech companies google facebook amazon services or pretty much free to us but lena con has really made a case that there are other ways. These companies are hurting the economy and individuals so our big tech companies trying to counter that argument. Well they're trying to say that basically. It has no basis that you know that. Actually when when companies like google or facebook acquire startups like instagram or fitbit that they're helping the economy that these companies may have not succeeded if a big tech company hadn't come in and bought their business and made them more profitable. A lot of them are really making the case. That over-regulating tech industry could do more harm than good. And so one thing that they're worried about for example is if you start telling a company like apple that you can't free install apps on phones. Well that could mean that you don't have maps and sells on your phone. You don't have even or something like that installed on your phone and you know there's a case that when apple puts its own kind of software like i message or find my iphone on there that you're sucked into kind of their environment but on the other hand people so find the stuff incredibly useful and it may be hard for them to sort of navigate around that and like hack thrown iphone apps so You know the congressman who is leading legislation came out and said he would make sure that iphones can still have absence stalled on them and he would just make it so that it's more fair but we're going to see a lot of this back and forth where industry people in big tax are going to say. Wait a second regulations going too far. This could actually hurt people and make it more inconvenient for them to use these tech products that we all know love. 'cause they're so easy to use the iphone. They're also arguing that if you were to start separating out the different very lucrative lines of businesses and these big tech companies like. Let's say you took away. Google ads business from g mail on everything else that it would be hard for the companies to continue to give away things like g mail for free so they may hang this sort of threat of. Hey do you really want to be charged for your email or for doing google search. Because that's what it may come down to you if someone like lena con enough to see where to break up our businesses right. Okay so just. Before khan's appointment. Congress introduced five antitrust bills. How do those play into all of us. The are very related. Because lena con actually was helping a lead an investigation into all these tech companies alleged monopolistic practices for like a year and a half and that investigation. That she was running was with. Congressman named congressman. Cellini and says alenia is the one who's now really leading all these new bills to try to regulate big tech. Many of the practices used by these countries have harmful economic effects. They discourage entrepreneurship destroy jobs. High-cost and degrade quality simply put. They have too much power. This power staves off new forms of competition creativity innovation so essentially cisa lenient con are working hand in hand to have this two pronged a antitrust action against big tech companies. One is through these actual bills. That could turn into laws right. That could change the game. For how big tech companies are regulated and the other is through the actual enforcement agency. Which lena con is now in charge of the ftc which would go and pursue those potential new laws and actually start finding or demanding. The company's changed your business based on the law. So all of this is well and good but can can really make these sweeping changes. That would fundamentally change the tech industry. It's gonna be tough first of all. She has a narrow margin of support on the. Ftc forest strong antitrust action. You know she has to get a majority of the five commissioners to support whatever agenda she wants to pursue right now seems like things are in her favor but that could change if if one member of the ftc changes the other thing is under existing antitrust law. It's pretty outdated. And it's difficult in some ways to go after these tech companies which are fundamentally very different businesses and the railroad monopolies or even the telecom companies of years past. So that's why congressman says lenient are trying to change a to update it to make it more applicable to tech companies. But if those laws don't get updated it will be harder for khan to make the case that even under these old outdated laws. These new tech companies are still applicable.

"Npr this morning the us senate is poised today to consider the for the people act. This is a proposed bill to set standards for elections and protect voting rights opponents. Call it a federal overreach. It is not expected to pass It's a response of course to state legislative efforts including voting bill blocked at the last minute during the regular legislative session here in texas which critic say would set limits on voter access in that of course was a response to what harris county did last election cycle with drive thru voting expanded early voting hours and sending out mass mailings with applications for mail in balloting. What would you like to see done or not done for that matter. When it comes to voting. More than anything. I would like these attempts to make policy based on the lie that there was massive voter fraud to stop because Not only do policies like What was tried here in texas right. They tried to make it easier to turn elections they tried to in the state legislature. They tried to pass a provision that would have banned voting before one pm on sundays with would have been a an affront and attack on the souls to the polls programs in african american churches and the church then from there go to vote would've allowed poll-watchers to to video record. Voters as their voting. All chris know they're saying it was a typo which is hard to believe. Even if you're you're very generous that you could change the you know. Accidentally put the number one for one pm. They say was meant to be eleven. Am and then accidentally european instead of a m and And somehow there's there's fraud before eleven. Pm but not before one pm so it's just kind of You know all of hurts participation and unnecessarily so because there's no evidence of massive fraud in any way in those kinds of situation but most importantly it hurts trust in the democratic system and the electoral system. When you repeat a a mystery so much that you're making policy on it that just tears you down at the fabric of our democracy and so i welcome legislation at the federal level that will keep the kinds of policies from passing Whatever it is that is going to make it harder to vote without evidence of the need for those policies Very important to bipartisan participation. In this it's a dangerous time when we make voting elections The democracy itself in a way a partisan issue can't be a wedge issue and. That's why i'm so proud of the leaders. In particularly the the a business leaders mma companies that have spoken out around this faith leaders.

"Check big business is to make sure that they have rivals so they have to compete with each other instead of fighting to just take over the government which is what they're doing now and that's what the point of antitrust is and was and price is only part of that story this out in two thousand seventeen and it really was explosive and you see a lot of skepticism around big tech right now but the reason is largely because of the movement that lena con has been leading. So that's what's so important about her is she's reoriented. The intellectual foundations of antitrust in the political foundations of antitrust and basically how we do business in america. You're talking about how. Lena connoisseur reorienting to an earlier idea of antitrust and i was reading that she found a quote from nineteen zero five from a journalist named ida tar bell. Who's writing about john rockefeller. And when she read this quote which basically describes rockefellers patient like a general who looks out at the field. And it's like okay need to capture that tiny little hill over there that tiny little hill. And if i do all that. I'm going to get the whole field. She looked at this and she thought this is exactly what jeff bezos is doing like he's just capturing all these little pieces of the market and all the sudden he's going to be running the whole thing. Yeah i it's funny. I remember when she was she was working on that article and she you know she's just was like it's amazing. You know you read about rockefeller. And it's like you're reading about bezos you know. In many cases they use some of the same tactics fighting the same political battles. You know it's it's it's pretty much all the same. There really are no new scams or no new ways to monopolize. It's always the same thing it's always. Acquiring bargaining power surveillance rebates kickbacks bribes. A lot of the coercive practices. You know you have new things like data but but you're basically using the same techniques to to acquire power with whatever technology is lying around. Can we talk about. Why the idea of what antitrust was or could be changed over the course of the twentieth century. You've alluded to that a little bit about. How the idea of antitrust evolution. So can you explain why we ever moved away from what we had back in the thirties. Sure so so. The anti monopoly. Tradition actually really goes back to the foundation of the country. Although antitrust is a late nineteenth century thing having to do with the formation of of industrial corporations but the anti monopoly tradition goes back much further and from kind of the moment that big business appeared. Big industrial corporations appeared eighteen eighties to all the way to kind of like the nineteen thirties. There were kind of debates about what do you do. How do you have a liberal democracy. Our republic and american state and society consistent with these big businesses. We've never had that kind of concentration of power. The only thing it looked like to americans that day was sort of some of the aristocrats elements. America had broken off from the kingdoms. And that's how. John sherman justified. The sherman act in eighteen ninety Talks about autocrats have trade and and kings of commodities. So you know there. There were a bunch of fights about what to do about like rockefeller and the firms that they had formed by the nineteen thirties. In the new deal. And what what have ultimately happened is is. The fdr smashed the power of the financiers. And while there were big businesses they were. They were forced to compete for network systems like. At and t. They were heavily. Regulated by the government and then for a lot of industries like banks us retail stores a lot of small light manufacturing farms. It was family size or slightly bigger and that was kind of the way that we organize. The economy and antitrust was a key. Part of that antitrust prevented big business for merging. It prevented them from cramming down their suppliers. It protected a retail stores from distributors. Did that look like just constant fines and lawsuits and approvals of mergers. What would it look like. It looked like a la mancha lawsuits. And you know and then lawyers. You know knew that this is what you can do this. But you can't do because the laws were the rules. Were pretty clear. They were interpreted through the courts but there were lawsuits in their work a lot of breakup of firms. And then also you had a private litigation so if someone is screwing me. I can sue them. It's possible to bring a case and and win that case and so you had a as an incentive system to prevent coercion things began to change in the nineteen seventies to academic schools of thought started having an argument about concentration of economic power on the left scores. Were happy to see. Businesses grow dominant as long as the government taxed them in redistributed. Some of that wealth on the right scholar saw hegemonic business as a natural growth of skill and needless to say the right didn't think such businesses should be highly taxed for their success but mad. Stoler he says. Both sides agreed monopolies. We're not inherently bad. If something looks unfair you know that's just maybe your perspective but it's if the big companies doing something that looks unfair. That's because the big company is good at what it's doing and you don't really understand it. Let's let's let those economists kind of the scientists figure it out and so i'm getting some real. Gordon gecko vibes here. Yeah i mean. That's gordon gecko. The the movie wall street was filmed in written in the nineteen eighties. Which was kind of just after this ideological transformation at happened that idea greed is good so liberal and conservative agreement like. Let's just not do this anymore. Yeah that's right. I mean the liberals the left and the right is still hated each other but the whole intent monopoly. Tradition fell away this agreement between the left and the right. You really see it. Take hold during the presidency of ronald reagan. He started dropping antitrust cases firing lawyers relaxing laws and appointing judges who didn't believe an antitrust enforcement the crucial point. Though is this this attitude continued. You can see it in decisions of both conservative and liberal supreme court justices you can see guiding the policies of the clinton administration and matt stoler. Says you can see it. During president obama's term to the obama administration was actively bad on this stuff. So what's what's really difficult. I think for most people understand about the monopoly. Problem is that it's really not a partisan issue and these ideas came from both the right in the laughed and they came from both political parties. So you know the ftc. Under obama had evidence of monopolization by google and instead of bringing a case in they decided to drop the suit in two thousand thirteen. A month after obama's re election when google ceo eric schmidt was sitting in obama's election war room seeing voter turnout. I mean conflict of interest much. Well there's tremendous. There was a lot of suspicions about deep corruption. But i think also the philosophical point. I'm making you know these guys really don't believe in decentralizing power because they think oh it's concentrate power and put our friends in charge and put the experts in charge. They know how to do stuff right. That's really their philosophy. And so i think it's it's really hard for. i think. Democrats to internalize that. It really is and democrat but it really is our fault and same thing with republicans. It it really. It really is kind of their fault to you. And so it's it's weird because everyone's looking for you know. Oh well it's the other guy that did it and we need to invest more on the ftc. And you know obama was good but he didn't go far enough and no actually what happened is there is this ideological revolution. That happened and reagan to obama even to trump somewhat that ideological revolution just continued and now we are reversing it going back to a traditional more traditional american view of the danger of monopolies counter revolution and antitrust take metzelaars. Got some ideas back in a minute in the right hands money can change the world. Another is a new kind of crypto currency. That is one hundred percent accessible to one hundred percent of everybody as more of us. join and use. Not the tokens. More value is created and return to people on the network. It is an economic system designed from the ground up to return value to the hands of its participants specifically you as you do. Well we all do well. Learn more at a nafa dot eye. High eye remedial. I'm a program manager at google right now. Lots of people are looking for ways to learn new job skills. That's why we created. Google career certificates and online training program for fast growing fields like it support project management data analytics user experience design. And more. you don't need any prior experience and you can be job ready in about six months so put your skills to work. Go to grow dot. Google slash certificates said that part of. What's hard for people to kind of get about what's happening at the ftc. Right now is how much what's going on. There is really about democrats and republicans. And what's interesting to me about. That is the fact that the confirmation of lena khan was bipartisan. As well and it seems like both parties have kind of come together to maybe not say oops out loud but to realize that. There's a problem here and they need to take a different tack. I'm wondering if watching her confirmation hearings you sort of saw. Democrats and republicans working through this life on air. Yeah i mean it's been happening for a few years. What is fascinating is that. Lena con is a progressive. And she's not shy about it. She's aggressive to like so during her confirmation hearing. She said there's potential criminal activity and she was alluding to price fixing between facebook and google in ad markets. I'm a some of the lawsuits that were filed last year. I think underscore these issues as well as potential criminal activity as well so i think it will be important to continue seeing how those lawsuits play out. You would think just a few years ago if you had somebody in one of these positions making allegations about some of the most powerful firms in the country you would think are. They're going to really have a rough road right for confirmation to put someone progressive. The republicans are gonna hater and the moderate surgery. Nfl all squishy. But what's interesting. Is that in fact what happened. Is that the moderates are the ones on the ropes. Because the moderates are the ones who led us to the status quo which everybody hates the fact that seventy five percent of industries in america have gotten more concentrated over the last twenty years and of top five tech companies. They bought a thousand firms and nobody. They didn't stop a single one. They're everyone's really angry about that. And so lee kong gets up there and says you know. Here's my philosophy. Here's my track record. And then she gets twenty two republican votes in the senate. And that's just. It's just astonishing and a real sea change in how we understand politics. I wonder if there's kind of a sense of relief in washington bringing someone like lena con in because having lena con allows them to feel like she's gonna handle it for us. We don't need to solve this one right now. you know. we're putting this person in place and hopefully that all right the ship here. There's definitely some of that. I think when you write a letter to the ftc your senator and you're like hey we pass this law asking you do this thing. The ftc usually takes those ladders and ignores them and so senators and members are really frustrated because because ftc staff and and leaders really don't believe in governing they really don't want to interfere in the business world they feel like that's inappropriate and so to have someone who's going to govern who's going to start using the authority the late night the ftc. I think is a relief. And i think it'll be interesting to see what happens when you know. When and if con- is able to start governing and starting start to say we are going to start restructuring these industries and banning unfair practices. And not letting monopolist run the show. What happens then and that's kind of an. That's kind of an open question. Yeah i mean you've written about. How even when ftc does do something. It's often not enough. And they don't seem to be taking charge of their role like they find facebook five billion dollars which sounds massive for being careless with users personal information but the ftc didn't even announce it facebook announced it an earnings call and even five billion dollars. It's not even that much for facebook. Facebook stock went up by forty billion dollars when they announced it so it was just kind of like a joke. And that's what i think. The ftc is perceived. You know. I think so. Commissioner row hit chopra. Who's a different ftc commissioner. He said that having a consent decree from the ftc is seen now kind of as a right of passage by silicon valley firms. Right so it's it's it's pathetic but there's a broader issue here and this is i think why lena connoisseur important which is that you have a crisis of the rule of law more broadly. So if you look at something like the sackler family and purdue pharmaceuticals which is the whole opioid crisis. You know these guys are drug dealers and it really should have been in jail for what they did you know but the the doj and the government let them off the hook and you saw this with the financial crisis were not a single banker of any importance went to jail and you know you see this over and over there is simply lawlessness. In our economy writ large and the ftc's a big part of it. It's not the only agency that's proven to be. You know feckless. But i think having somebody who's going to really focus on fairness in competition in america can really change that dynamic notches at the ftc. But i think kind of across the government in general and that is actually what the people want it's increasingly. I think what congress wants. People are very confused. They're very afraid of the idea of wielding power to govern. But i they're open to it. Here's what i think is going to be a little bit interesting about what happens with lena con once she gets going you say the people behind what she wants to do but once you start to corral big companies i just wonder if prices are gonna go up for people and if that will then become a big stick that can be used politically against whoever's in power to say. Listen people your prices are going up. Because he's people are being regulated more. And that's the way the cookie crumbles. We're already seeing already. Seeing this happen with inflation when it comes to stimulus money going out the door. So i wonder if you think about that too. Yeah i mean what you're essentially saying in in different words is that these firms are so powerful that they are ungovernable. Yeah and. I think that that is an open question. The idea that we the people through our governing institutions with people that we elect cannot touch. these firms. Leads us to the question. I mean i don't necessarily believe that that's true. But i don't know that it's not true but i think it does lead to the question of do we really live in a democracy if our government can't touch the corporate sector. What does the history tell you about how long this work takes this kind. Of course correction. I think it'll take generation. I mean every generation gets its chance to secure freedom or to give up on freedom because freedom liberty is a scary thing right because it means that that governing you have to govern yourself fundamentally as a human being and what the monopolist ultimately promises. Don't worry i'll take care of you. All you have to do is surrender your liberty to me. And it requires a sense of confidence. Among the people among policymakers in our democratic institutions. And it's a never ending struggle. If you stop fighting for your own freedom if you stop having courage that you can be a free person live in a free society you lose that free society so we earn a pretty deep hole. So i think it'll take twenty to thirty years but it can. We can have some stuff almost immediately but to get back to where we were in terms of like our institutions. Like yeah we can. We can It'll it'll take a while but it's gonna be fun. That's the other thing is this stuff is really fun and really innovative matt. Stoler thank you so much for joining me. Thanks a lot.

"For regulators. Is that fair. almost so yeah the framework. That enforces have is. What's called consumer welfare. So you have two ways of understanding antitrust enforcement the traditional way is market power are these firms powerful in big are they using coercive practices to bully their competitors suppliers customers whatever and price is one aspect of that but not the only aspect of it. The other way to understand antitrust is the efficiency or consumer welfare model and in that model. What you say is the only thing we really care about is. Consumer prices are consumer prices low. If they're low than then. There is no antitrust violation. Going on and what amazon was doing is they were engaged in a below cost pricing. They were charging less than the item cost so that they could drive their competitors out of business but then eventually raise prices later did show in the paper basically like it looks like it's cheaper but here the ways they pass the cost on of making this product cheaper to you and actually raised the prices. Yes so there's one part of the of the paper where she showed. That amazon. Bought a firm called diapers dot. Com is known and the way that they were able to force diapers dot com to sell out to them. Is they lowered their prices of diapers lower than diapers dot com and lost hundreds of millions of dollars a month and went to diapers dot com and said sell out to us.

"Break up hills, which aren't those at all Like you said. They're just using that to get us on board. My fear is they're going to take that from the private sector and now enshrined that with government regulators who are going to use these big tech break up bills to then use the power of government to make sure private companies out there. Doing things against the shareholder interest. And think about how many pension funds are invested in these companies that are now going to be pressured to basically lose money and screw your pension over under the guise of big tech breakup. Yeah, we've already seen this. This play in action with what we just referred to when you had a major big tech company, the CEO of the head of that company. Communicating via email with the guy who runs a big agency who is the highest paid official in the government with Dr Fauci and Mark Zuckerberg colluding to keep information from the American people last year information that frankly, looks like it turns out to be it was the truth, and they kept the truth from us. So now we're going to say Lina Khan, who just got appointed to to chair the FTC, You know where she just got to point this week. So that's my Federal Trade Commission where all this power is going to go. Guess who she worked for. Before she went there. She worked for Jerry Nadler. David Cicilline E on the House student Democrats on the House Judiciary Committee. Do you think she really wants to make sure that that these big tech platforms don't censor Dan Bongino? So that's what this is all all about. I mean, and you're exactly right. The one of the other empty stairs chairs is, um, Democrat is Becca Slaughter, and she has said, we should use anti trust laws to stop systemic racism. What? So you're that's where they want to go with this, And that's what I fear. Let's do this. Let's let's let's change checks in 2 30 so that you take away their liability protection and let's break them up. Let's break him up. Yeah, but you've got to make sure they don't get this liability protection. So not not make not make this union between big government and big tech so they can further harm us.
