This is the July 29, 2020 hearing on "Online Platforms and Market Power, Part 6: Examining the Dominance of Amazon, Apple, Facebook, and Google," held before the Subcommittee on Antitrust, Commercial and Administrative Law of the Committee on the Judiciary, House of Representatives. From the opening statement of David Cicilline: "The purpose of today's hearing is to examine the dominance of Amazon, Apple, Facebook, and Google. [...] Prior to the COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019] pandemic, these corporations already stood out as titans in our economy. In the wake of COVID-19, however, they're likely to emerge stronger and more powerful than ever before. As American families shift more of their work, shopping, and communication online, these giants stand to profit. Locally owned businesses, meanwhile, mom-and-pop stores on Main Street, face an economic crisis unlike any in recent history. As hard as it is to believe, it's possible that our economy will emerge from this crisis even more concentrated and consolidated than before." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Jeff Bezos, Sundar Pichai, Tim Cook, and Mark Zuckerberg.
