Don't regulate Facebook
Posted in: Government & Policy at 27/03/2018 19:13
The problems at Facebook and others, real and perceived, at Google, Amazon and Apple have led to an easy consensus: The large technology companies should be regulated. When Sens. Ted Cruz (R-Tex.) and Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) call for the same thing, it is possible that even in Washington — The City Where Nothing Happens — Congress will decide that technology companies must be regulated.
Such an outcome would be a bad mistake — bad for the companies, of course, but also bad for us, their users, and bad for the country.
