Senate proposal and House draft Inspired. It beats American companies such as Amazon, Apple, Google, Facebook and possibly Microsoft. He dramatically rewrites the rules of the market for a handful of leading companies, and supervises how digital products are developed. This is unwise. Technology innovation responds to the market, not to ministries.

Although designed as anti-trust laws, the proposals are in the style of the European Union. Industry Regulation. They do not start by asking about the behavior of businesses and whether it benefits or harms consumers. Instead, these accounts require businesses to be successful, and they place restrictions on a few.

Today, the American technology industry is the envy of the world. There is much we can lose by making this mistake. There are more “Unicorn” companies in the US than in Europe and China, and they already have national security experts Expressed concern. The importance of providing benefits to large Chinese companies in terms of their American competitors. He said such ideas “reduce critical R&D priorities” and “allow foreign competitors to displace leaders in the US technology sector, both at home and abroad.”

In addition to the implications for national security, consumers have incurred significant losses. These resolutions, like Google Maps, are the result of Google search, and the integration of iMessage, FaceTime and Apple App Store in the iPhone will prevent integration in the digital economy. And it can protect the same day supply from consumers like Amazon Basics and Amazon Prime. In fact, Amazon could legislate, forcing the separation of first- and third-party businesses. Prohibition Their preferred e-commerce platform is an undisclosed number of businesses. In addition, these ideas can do it More difficult For digital services to solve bad actors online Forcing To handle discriminatory content.

These stagnant American success stories helped people work, buy, study, pray, and connect with their families during the epidemic, and thousands of small businesses continued to shine in unprecedented economic crises.

In my view, leading an association that has been supporting technology competition for 50 years, policy makers are making no effort to promote competition by discouraging consumer innovations. U.S. competition policy focuses on promoting consumer safety. Consumers can be interested in selecting winners and losers. Take the back seat To politics. The threat of a competitive market must be addressed by financing executives to protect the interests of consumers, rather than issuing rules around a few successful companies, excluding foreign competitors.

Some policymakers have developed the illusion that successful digital services are a bad thing. Consumers want companies to compete in the marketplace for their business. That’s when consumers win with lower prices, free services and more innovations. One of the reasons the United States is so successful in the marketplace is that it does not support competitors who reject our policies, but the strongest competing companies in Europe are also at risk of violating competition rules for the benefit of consumers.

If US policymakers push companies to become more like the EU, they will slow down production, and the digital economy will suffer.
